ATLANTA, GA. -- The Furman women's tennis team competed at the Georgia State Fall Invitational this weekend in Atlanta, Ga.
The tournament featured an abbreviated dual match format. On Friday, Furman defeated Georgia State, 3-2, in singles, then on Saturday, Furman tied Georgia State but fell to Oregon in doubles. In Saturday's singles action, the Paladins rolled to a 5-1 victory over Middle Tennessee State. Action concluded on Sunday, where Furman dropped a 5-0 match to Oregon.
"The format of this tournament provided perfect experience to prepare our players for the spring season," said Furman head coach Adam Herendeen. "There were four really strong teams at the tournament, so our results showed our team just how much progress we have made, and yet how much potential this group has as we look toward the spring. We learned a lot this weekend and are excited to apply it at the Furman Duals next weekend."
The Paladins will conclude the 2016 season next weekend at the Furman Duals in Greenville, S.C.
