Kimberly Anicete became the sixth women's tennis player in school history to reach 90 career wins, capping a 5-2 win for the Owls over No. 55 Georgia State in a dual match played at the University Tennis Center at the University of New Orleans on Saturday.
Anicete improved her career mark to 90-37 with a straight set win over the Panthers' Maryna Kozachenko to join Wendy Wood (147-36), Tracie Blumentritt (123-36), Susan Rudd (108-52), Jessica Gagnon (95-39) and Blair DiSesa (92-59) in reaching the 90-win plateau.
Rice needed a tiebreak win by Katherine Ip and Solomiya Zinko in doubles to take a 1-0 lead into singles.
Senior Dominique Harmath extended that lead to 2-0 with her sixth straight win in singles, downing GSU's Masa Grgan 6-2, 6-0. Alison Ho and Katherine Ip followed quickly after to clinch the match for the Owls.
The Owls will wrap up their weekend trip to New Orleans on Sunday when they face the Tulane Green Wave at 10 a.m.
