Guillermo Gomez was beaten by Stanford’s Bradley Klahn 6-4, 6-4.

Falconi will play Georgia’s Chelsey Gullickson at noon on Saturday in the fourth round. She defeated Gullickson twice this season: 6-2, 6-1 in October and 7-5, 6-0 in March.

Falconi, a sophomore, hasn’t lost since Feb. 13. She is 40-2 in singles this year. She is the third player in school history to reach 40 wins. Kristi Miller and 2008 NCAA singles champion Amanda McDowell are the others.

Good Luck

Wow, look at the chompers on that girl, one of the worst grills I’ve ever seen. You Gay Tech girls continue to prove my point, still haven’t seen a cute one who didn’t have a red dot on her forehead. Jeez, and I thought dental care in England was bad.

Where are all those nerds now? Especially “Go Jackets”, where are you big mouth. You got lucky in baseball this year, but that’s all.
