In the round of 16 they beat Duke 4-1.This win was followed by a tough match against SEC rival Tennessee in the quarterfinals after the Volunteers defeated California. In the quarterfinal match up, Georgia lost the doubles point, but pulled out a hard fought win after winning 4 of the 6 singles matches.
Georgia now faces defending National Champion, USC, Monday May 23 at 3 pm. to earn a spot in the National Championship game.
Division III
The Division III quarterfinal matches have been set and Emory, of Atlanta, is the lone Southern team remaining. They defeated the only other Southern team, NC Wesleyan, in the third round. Emory faces Middlebury in the quarters on May, 24 with all remaining matches being held in Claremont, CA.
