EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. – SIUE women's tennis picked up a pair of singles victories Friday but couldn't overcome Murray State in a 5-2 loss at the SIUE Tennis Courts.
"It wasn't the result we wanted, but I love this team," said SIUE Head Coach Adam Albertsen. "We came out and fought like crazy in every match and really made a strong Murray State team work."
The Cougars dropped to 6-11 overall and 1-4 in Ohio Valley Conference play. Murray State improved to 11-7 overall and 5-1 in OVC action.
Albertsen said the Cougars have shown continued improvement this season as they get set for Senior Day Saturday morning against Austin Peay. Match time for the regular season home finale is at 11.
"I have seen a lot of growth in this team, and we look to keep this going into our upcoming matches," he added.
