The squad also debuted new doubles teams, which proved successful as the No. 1 team of Gebes and Ana Pimienta finished as the champion runner-ups. The pair's only loss came to South Carolina (8-5).
After this weekend, the Golden Eagles head to Tucson, Arizona where MU will compete in the Wildcat Invitational Oct. 3-5. Marquette will not play at home again until January.
