JMTA star and LSU freshman Jessica Golovin rallied to win in three sets on court two to lead the No. 20 Lady Tigers to a come-from-behind 4-3 victory over No. 23 Kentucky in the second round of the SEC Women’s Tennis Tournament on Thursday afternoon at the LSU Tennis Complex.
Golovin, ranked No. 59 in singles, defeated No. 75 Justina Mikulskyte, 1-6, 6-4, 6-4, to clinch the victory and send the Lady Tigers into the quarterfinal round of the SEC Tournament.
“Kentucky gave us a heck of a match,” co-head coach Julia Sell said. “That was an unbelievable finish. Jessica is a special story today because the girl she played is usually number one. To come back after losing the first set and pull it out is big for her and the team.”
