FORT WORTH, Texas - No. 33 TCU proved to be too much for the Marquette University women's tennis team to handle as it fell 6-1 to the Horned Frogs Sunday afternoon at Bayard H. Friedman Tennis Center.

Rocio Diaz picked up the Golden Eagles' lone win of the afternoon when she topped Millie Nichols, 6-1, 4-6, 1-0 (15) at No. 4.

Marquette fought hard in doubles action but ultimately came up short of the early lead. The No. 1 duo of Gillian Hush and Olga Fischer fell to No. 42 Millie Nichols and Olivia Smith, 8-6. Ali Dawson and Kristina Radan also dropped 8-6 to Gabi Barbosa and Gaby Mastromarino at No. 3.

With the early lead in tow, the Horned Frogs earned wins at Nos. 2, 3 and 5 to clinch the match win.

Fischer had a strong showing at No. 1 singles winning the first set, 6-4, but was unable to hold on the advantage and fell to Stefanie Tan, 7-6 (1), 1-0 (6).

The Golden Eagles continue their tour of the Lone Star state at Houston on Wednesday, March 14.
