ATLANTA, Ga. — No. 3 Emory suffered a 6-3 loss to Auburn-Montgomery in the Eagles’ season-opening match on Sunday.
The Eagles dropped to 0-1 on the season with the loss, while Auburn Montgomery, the reigning NAIA Champion, improved to 3-0 on the campaign.
Emory picked up its only match victory of the day in the fifth singles match, where sophomore Brenna Kelly led Hagar Caro 6-2, 4-1 before the Warhawk retired. The Eagles earned their other two points by default after Auburn Montgomery did not play anyone in the third doubles or sixth singles matches.
