LAFAYETTE, La. (2/19/11) – The Arkansas State women's tennis team
(2-2, 1-2) dropped a 6-1 decision on the road Saturday afternoon to
Sun Belt Conference foe Louisiana-Lafayette (4-2, 2-0).
"ULL is a good team," said ASU head coach Marcia Williams. "We had
some close matches but didn't come through to win them when we had the
chance. We don't seem to be able to play a complete match. Some of
the girls played good doubles but bad singles or they played good
singles and bad doubles. Only Emily (Crowe) and Ioana (Teu) played
well at singles and doubles, but they still couldn't capitalize on the
opportunities they had to win."
The Red Wolves lost the doubles point on the day, winning only at the
No. 3 spot. Seniors Jenny Herring and Menna Kamal teamed up for an
8-3 win over Sandra Alhqvist and Mia Gordon. A-State also took just
one singles match with Biljana Miloshevska topping Alhqvist in
straight sets 6-2, 6-4.
Arkansas State will continue its road trip Sunday afternoon in
Beaumont, Texas when it meets Lamar in a 10:00 a.m. contest.
