No. 3 Georgia hands Kentucky its first home loss of season

Lauren Herring

LEXINGTON, Ky. -- No. 28 Kentucky was dealt its first home loss of the season Friday by a 4-0 score to No. 3 Georgia, snapping Kentucky's 11-match home winning streak.

In a tough doubles competition, the Wildcats fell short of the point. Georgia claimed wins at No. 1 and No. 2 doubles to clinch and lead Kentucky 1-0. No. 36-ranked Kate Fuller and Silvia Garcia held off Kentucky duo Kelsey Dieters and Aldila Sutjiadi for a win at No. 2 doubles. In a challenging match at the No. 1 position, seniors Caitlin McGraw and CeCe Witten chipped away at a 5-2 deficit, but it wasn't enough to top No. 21-ranked Maho Kowase and Lauren Herring. The Georgia pair won 8-6 and gave Georgia the early advantage.

Singles play was just as demanding for Kentucky as Georgia won three matches to sweep the Wildcats. No. 33 Lilly Kimbell defeated sophomore Kirsten Lewis 6-2, 6-2 to expand the Bulldogs' lead to 2-0. A victory against Edmée Morin-Kougoucheff by No. 12 Silvia Garcia at the No. 4 singles slot put the red and black within one point of securing the match. No. 10 Lauren Herring clinched the match at the No. 1 singles position to send Georgia home with another conference win.

Kentucky falls to 14-5 for the season and 4-3 in conference play.
