BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Mia Frogner and Tiffany Hollebeck finished in third place overall at No. 1 doubles at the Hoosier Classic.

Frogner and Hollebeck dropped their semifinals match at eventual champion Madison Appel and Kim Schmider of Indiana 8-1. SIUE fought back for third with an 8-4 win over Wright State's Linsey Verstrepen and Haily Morgan.

"I thought the effort today was good," said SIUE Head Coach Nick Mueller. "The intensity is good. I am happy about that."

Hollebeck scored the lone singles victory of the day for the Cougars at No. 3 singles. She bested Wright State's Tori Turner 7-5, 7-6 (7-4).

"We started slow but we finished strong," said Mueller.
