The women’s tennis team (8-7) struggled over the weekend, dropping a pair of Missouri Valley Conference contests at home.
The team played in its first home match in almost a month on Friday, a 7-0 loss to Illinois State.
“We are still looking at this season as one match at a time,” coach Scott Petersen said. “We are preparing for our upcoming matches knowing that the remainder of these matches are going to be battles every time we step on the court.”
The Braves returned to action Saturday against last year’s MVC champions, Indiana State, but again fell, this time by a score of 5-2.
“We are working very hard to get ourselves ready for the next conference matches,” Petersen said. “The two teams we played this past weekend are among the top couple of teams in the Missouri Valley Conference.”
