ATHENS, Ga. - No. 8 Winston Lin and No. 125 Ashok Narayana captured singles victories Saturday against Georgia, but the Columbia men's tennis team fell to the Bulldogs, 4-2.

Georgia took the doubles point with wins in the No. 2 and 3 matches to go up 1-0 early. The Bulldogs improved their lead to 3-0 with victories in the No. 4 and 2 singles matches but the Lions responded with two wins of their own.

Narayana got Columbia on the board with a 6-5 (7-5), 6-3 win over No. 48 Ben Wagland in the No. 3 singles match and then Lin followed with a thrilling three-set tiebreaker victory to get the Lions within one, 3-2. Unfortunately, Hernus Pieters would take the No. 5 match for UGA to seal the win.

Columbia returns to the courts tomorrow at 9 a.m. against Washington.
