Atlanta –The Young Harris College women’s tennis opened its fall season Friday at the SCAD-Atlanta Invitational.

The Mountain Lion netters had some mixed results, but overall head coach Jacob Turner was pleased with some of the positive results.

“It was a long day, with lots of ups and downs,” Turner said. “The highlight of the day was the play of freshman Victoria Herndon (who was undefeated on the day in both singles and doubles) and freshman Taylor Hamala (on the men’s team). Both Victoria and Taylor won their Main Draw singles matches by fighting hard and overcoming some nerves at times. I am hopefully that tomorrow (Saturday) we will be able to pick up our play in both singles and doubles and come out with some more positive results.”

In the Women’s A Flight Singles Main Draw, Sara Rodgers lost to Sadia Mayou, 6-0, 6-0 and Sarah Deese fell to Mary Claire Sliade, 6-0, 6-0. In the consolation bracket, Deese dropped a 6-0, 6-0 decision to Dahbi.

In the Women’s B Flight Singles Main Draw, Mary Beth Maxwell was topped by Asia Boyd, 6-0, 6-0, but Herndon defeated Rebecca Swindall, 6-1, 6-2. In the consolation bracket, Maxwell fell to Adreina Gomez, 6-4, 2-6, 13-11.

In doubles play, the team of Deese and Maxwell lost to Slaide and Mayou, 8-0. Rodgers and Herndon beat Boyd and Gomez, 8-4.
