Cougars Enter Final Weekend With Title Hopes

EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. – SIUE women's tennis travels to Morehead State and Eastern Kentucky for its final regular season matchups of the season.

Friday's match at Morehead State begins at 2 p.m. CT while Saturday's match at Eastern Kentucky is set for 10 a.m. CT.

SIUE, 15-4 overall and 7-1 in the Ohio Valley Conference, has won seven straight OVC contests.

"Our upperclassmen have done a great job leading this team over the last couple weeks," said SIUE Head Coach Nick Mueller. "We are now in the home stretch of the season and we can see the light at the end of the tunnel."

With two wins over this weekend, the Cougars clinch at least a share of the OVC regular season title and a first round bye in the OVC tournament.

SIUE is currently tied with Eastern Kentucky and UT Martin for first place in the OVC at 7-1. Morehead State enters the weekend at 3-5.

"We have made strides overall as a group, but this is not the time to become complacent," said Mueller. "Our team will be ready to step up to the next challenge."
