Florida State didn't let the loss of the double's point phase them at first. At # 5 singles, Seminole Jordan Kelly-Houston quickly passed through Magin Ortiga 6-1, 6-0. However, that is as close as Florida State would get to making the match any closer in the overall team score. Kevin King quickly finished his opponent of at the # 4 slot with an identical 6-1, 6-0 score over FSU's Blake Davis. Senior Dean O'Brien, who provided the clinching point for Tech's win over the University of Georgia a couple weeks ago, edged Anderson Reed 7-5, 6-2 at # 6 to put Tech up 3-1.
The final 3 matches proved to be tougher contests, as Elliot Potvin pulled out a 6-4, 7-4 win at line 3 over Seminole Connor Smith. He clinched the match for the Jackets. #12 ranked Guillermo Gomez and # 50 Juan Spir provided tight victories at #1 and 2 as well, with Gomez winning in a third set 6-2 and Spir winning his second set in a tiebreaker.
The Yellow Jackets will face William and Mary in their next contest on Wednesday at the Bill Moore Tennis Center. The team is seeking their 9th win of the season against the Tribe.
