In a down-to-the-wire match, the Boston College Eagles’ women’s tennis team squeaked by the No. 13 seed Virginia Tech Hokies to advance to the second round of the ACC Tournament in Rome, Georgia.
The Eagles win was powered by a strong showing from their lower ranked players, with singles wins coming from the Nos. 3, 5 and 6 pairings, represented by Kylie Wilcox, Jackie Urbinati and Elene Tsokilauri. The Eagles also picked up the deciding doubles point off wins by No. 2 pairing Lexi Borr and Jackie Urbinati, and No. 3 pairing Asiya Dair and Elene Tsokilauri. The only doubles pairing BC lost to was the No. 69 pairing in the country, and Va. Tech’s No. 1 pairing, represented by Va. Tech’s Caroline Daxhelet and Francesca Fusinato.
The Eagles continue their march to the ACC Championship Thursday afternoon in Georgia as they take on the No. 5 seed North Carolina State Wolfpack.
