Tempe, AZ - The Arizona State Women's Tennis Team put forth yet another awesome effort Friday afternoon against the No. 13 Lady Tigers of Clemson, but in the end they fell just short with a 4-3 loss.

The Sun Devils stormed back in singles with Sabrina Capannolo, Cindy Sureephong, and Lauren Colalillo all taking wins.
