The sixth-seeded Colonials rallied hard after falling behind 1-3, but the third-seeded Minutewomen ultimately closed the door on GW’s season, 4-2, Friday in the quarterfinals of the 2013 Atlantic 10 Women’s Tennis Championship.
The sixth-seeded Colonials (11-7) eked out a narrow victory against the 11th-seeded Hawks (13-11) in a four-hour battle that came down to the No. 3 singles match.
After a convincing win last week against Temple, this weekend saw a back-to-back 5-2 defeats against East Carolina and James Madison, respectively.
The Colonials were finally able to play an outdoor match at home, and it garnered some extra mojo for the team, which captured a victory over A-10 rival Temple for the first time since 2006.
GW could not have beaten the University of Maryland Eastern Shore any more decisively Sunday.
