The No.26 Georgia Tech doubles team of Kendal Woodard and Megan Kurey will be playing in the finals of the 2013 USTA/ITA National Indoor Intercollegiate Championships after their 6-0, 4-6, 6-0 victory in the semifinals against No. 54 Guliana Olmos and Zoe Scandalis of USC.
“Kendal and Megan are playing with so much resiliency and Coach Harmon and I are extremely proud of the way they are competing and representing the Georgia Tech program,” assistant coach Alison Silverio said. “We stand for excellence in everything we do and tomorrow is another opportunity to get better as a team. The finals of the ITA/USTA National Indoor Tournament is a huge stage to play on and I am confident Kendal and Megan are ready to give a big time performance.”
It wasn’t easy, but the pair of sophomores have been gutting out huge wins all season. Today was no different.
“It was a very hard fought match today,” Silverio said. “We had to stay mentally tough. USC changed their game style after the first set, and we made the necessary adjustment s in the third set. Our biggest adjustment was execution at the net and our mental focus.”
The duo will face No. 58 Julia Fellerhoff and Rebecca Shine of the University of Louisville during the finals tomorrow morning at the USTA-Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.
