Women's Tennis Falls to East Tennessee State
Feb. 28, 2004
The East Tennessee State women's tennis team claimed a 5-2 victory from the University of Memphis in Troy, Ala. The Bucs improve to a 7-4 record for the spring season, while Memphis falls to 4-5 for the spring.
The Lady Tigers went down early, 1-0, after losing the No. 2 and 3 doubles matches. ETSU then picked up wins at No. 2 and 5 singles before senior Marlene Dirnstorfer claimed Memphis' first point with a 6-3, 6-0 win at No. 1 singles. But when Jessica Irey closed out her No. 4 match with a 6-2, 6-4 win over Yesica Ares, Memphis could add just one more point with Christina Wieser's come-from-behind victory to make the final score, 5-2, Memphis.
Memphis will compete in three road matches next weekend, facing Southern University in New Orleans at 11 a.m., Friday. The Lady Tigers will then face the University of New Orleans, Saturday, at 2 p.m. and UTEP, Sunday, at 11 a.m.
