COLLEGE PARK, Md. - On Senior Day in College Park Maryland lost one its toughest fought matches of the season to Wake Forest 5-2.
The Terps (5-13, 0-11 ACC) got off to a good start picking up their third doubles point of the week. Maryland won at No. 1 and No. 2 doubles. They clinched the point with an 8-6 win by seniors Maggie MacKeever and Lisa Miller at No. 1. The other doubles win was an 8-2 win by Julia Huschke and Jordan Hansbrough, playing together for the first time in dual matches this season.
Hansbrough went 2-for-2 on the day picking up a singles win as well. She beat Wake Forest's Katarina Reveche 6-4, 6-5. Miller lost a heartbreaking match losing her first set in tiebreakers. Three of the six singles matches went to seven games in the first set.
"Today was one of the best days for us," said Maryland head coach Howard Joffe. "This is the type of effort that will get our team to another level."
Maryland honored two seniors, MacKeever from Silver Spring, and Miller, a native of Airlie Beach, Australia.
"Maggie and Lisa represent everything that's good about college athletics," said Joffe. "They are great students, great team people, and they represent the school in the classiest manner."
Next week Maryland heads down to Cary, N.C. for the ACC tournament starting Thursday.
