TALLAHASSEE, FLA. -- The Furman women's tennis team concluded the fall season this weekend at the at the FSU All-Conference Showdown at the Scott Speicher Tennis Center on the campus of Florida State in Tallahassee, Fla.
Sophomore Katarina Kozarov came from behind to beat 117th-ranked Elise Van Heuvelen of Iowa, 2-6, 6-3, 6-4, in the opening round of the gold singles draw, and redshirt freshman Carol Elizabeth Kerman scored a 2-6, 7-6, 6-1 victory versus Iowa's Anastasia Reimchen in the first round of the Seminole singles draw.
The Paladin doubles duo of sophomore Anna Walter and freshman Georgie Walker scored an 8-5 advantage over Yvon Martinez and Kristen White of West Virginia in the final round of the spear doubles draw, while junior Katty Weymouth teamed with Kozarov to beat USF's Vanja Klaric and Evelyne Tiron, 8-3, in a consolation match-up.
"We did not finish the fall quite in the way that we had hoped," said Furman head coach Adam Herendeen. "We have a lot of work to do in the off season to improve and get to where we want to be as a team, but I am confident that this group is up for the challenge."
Furman opens the 2018 spring season January 17 when the Paladins play host to Coastal Carolina and Brenau at the Mickel Tennis Center in Greenville, S.C.
