STARKVILLE, Miss. - The No. 9 seed Ole Miss women's tennis team dropped a 4-0 decision to top-seeded Georgia Friday in the quarterfinals of the SEC Championship at the A.J. Pitts Tennis Centre. 

With the loss, the Rebels fall to 16-13 overall and now must wait for the NCAA Championship selections to be announced on April 30 to find out their postseason destination.  The Rebels defeated South Carolina 4-3 in the second round Thursday.

"Georgia was just the better team today," head coach Mark Beyers said.  "It's a shame that we couldn't finish at No. 1 doubles because we were up triple match point.  In singles we had some close matches.  They were just the better team, that's why they're the No. 1 seed.  We look forward to continuing our season in the NCAA Championships."

Georgia won the doubles point with quick wins at Nos. 2 and 3, but the Rebel duo of Iris Verboven and Erin Stephens led 7-6 and had triple match point to defeat No. 1 ranked Kate Fuller and Silvia Garcia.

Rebel freshman Marija Milutinovic lost to Georgia's Ayaka Okuno 6-3, 6-0 at No. 5 singles.  Caroline Rohde-Moe dropped a 6-2, 6-1 decision to sixth-ranked Lauren Herring at No. 1 singles as Georgia went ahead 3-0.  Erin Stephens had her four match win streak snapped with a 6-2, 6-4 loss to Garcia on court four.

The NCAA Selections and host sites will be announced April 30.
