ATLANTA -- Georgia Tech, the No. 13 ranked team in the most recent Intercollegiate Tennis Association poll, dealt the 51st-ranked Princeton women's tennis team a 5-2 loss Friday afternoon in Atlanta.

The Yellow Jackets (4-1) have won four in a row against ITA-ranked teams after losing to then-No. 6 Georgia in their season opener. Princeton dropped to 1-1 after a season-opening win against Temple Wednesday.

Georgia Tech swept the doubles point and also took the first three singles matches to be decided to clinch the match. Princeton then picked up its two points, first when Rachel Saiontz defeated ITA 106th-ranked Christina Ngo 6-3, 6-3 at third singles and then when Lindsay Graff knocked off Elizabeth Kilborn 6-2, 3-6, 6-3 at second singles.

The Tigers will return to the court when they host a pair of matches next weekend, Saturday against the current No. 41 Maryland Saturday at noon followed by Rutgers Sunday at noon, both in Jadwin Gymnasium.
