Ute Women's Tennis Falls To No. 24 Texas A&M
COLLEGE STATION, Texas – The Utah women's tennis team fell to the No. 24-ranked Texas A&M Aggies on Friday afternoon at the Mitchell Tennis Center, dropping the match 7-0.
Utah rolled with the same doubles lineup as the previous three matches to begin the season and came up short to start the day. The Utes' top duo of Madeline Lamoreaux and Emily Dush were able to build a 5-4 lead over Texas A&M's McBryde and Faa-Hviding, but the match was unfinished after the Aggies took matches on court two and three.
Trailing 1-0, Utah quickly fell behind in singles play and dropped the first sets on courts two through six. Madeline Lamoreaux battled to a 6-4 victory in the first to lead Utah. Texas A&M picked up its first singles win when Jasmine Rich fell 6-0, 6-1 at the No. 6 position, while a 6-1, 6-3 win over Anastasia Goncharova for the Aggies rolled in shortly after.
The match was clinched from a win on court two, while the Aggies continued the wins and followed with victories at the No. 3 and No. 5 spots as well. Although Lamoreaux was able to take the first set on court one, she fell 6-3 in the second and ultimately dropped the third set to close out the match.
Utah will be back in action Sunday when the team faces Houston to wrap up the road trip. Utah and Houston will play at 10 a.m. MT at the Barbara Wallace Winston Tennis Facility in Houston.
