EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. – The SIUE women's tennis team played its final match of the 2012-13 season Sunday as it hosted Ohio Valley Conference foe Eastern Kentucky at the SIUE Tennis Courts.

The Colonels, who sit atop the OVC standings with a perfect 10-0 record in conference, won the match 7-0.

EKU won all but one singles match in straight sets.  At No. 4 singles, Haley Ilcewicz won the second set but eventually lost the third against Milena Poffo (6-3, 2-6, 10-2).

The Cougars finish the season with an overall record of 8-13 and a 4-6 mark in the OVC.  The team ended the season in eighth place in the OVC standings, two spots out of contention for the conference tournament this weekend.
