Ngo drops defending NCAA Champion

Though Tech women’s tennis team fell to Georgia in their meeting on Friday, Feb. 4, junior Viet Ha Ngo topped the 2010 women’s NCAA singles champion Chelsey Gullickson in three long sets.

Ngo began the match dropping a close first set, 4-6. She, however, would fight back to tie it, breaking Gullickson twice in the second set and winning 6-2. Ngo finished the match and won the deciding third set, 6-4.

Even with Ngo playing at the top of her game, the Jackets were overwhelmed, losing the overall dual match, 5-2.
