Women's Tennis Falls to No. 71 DePaul, 6-1
Feb. 15, 2013
The Marquette women’s tennis team saw its five-match winning streak snapped on Friday evening with a 6-1 loss to DePaul at the Helfaer Recreation Center.
The Golden Eagles were swept in doubles to open the match and fell in the first three singles matches. Freshman Erin Gebes came up with MU’s lone point in the match as she battled to a 6-1, 5-7 and 11-9 contest. Classmate Aina Hernandez Soler fought back after dropping her first set, but could not hang on in the third frame, falling, 4-6, 7-6, 10-5.
“We played a really tough DePaul team tonight,” head coach Jody Bronson said. “We let the doubles points slip away. We are a young team and we need to learn how to close out matches when we have a lead. Erin (Gebes) played a great match tonight and beat an opponent that we had lost to for three consecutive years. We will look to rebound on Sunday with two strong matches.”
Marquette will host a doubleheader on Sunday, Feb. 17. The Golden Eagles face Ball State at 9 a.m. before taking on Valparaiso at 2:30 p.m. CT
