March 26, 2006
MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. - The Memphis women's tennis team (3-8) suffered a second straight 7-0 loss, this one to league foe UAB, to wrap up a trio of matches in Myrtle Beach, Sunday.
Memphis battled at the top two doubles spots, while playing a second match without sophomore Brooke Cowie, a member of the normal No. 1 doubles team and the team's No. 1 or 2 singles player. Andrea Feichtinger, Cowie's normal partner at No. 1, instead teamed with Alex Tjioe, taking the Blazer's No.1 team of Anniemieke Elsholz and Julia von Samson to an 8-6 UAB win. The Lady Tiger No. 2 team of Christina Wieser and Kristin Noble also battled, but fell 8-6, to the team of Gulsah Esen and Ornisha Maier-Knapp.
The loss is the second straight loss after Memphis snapped a five-game skid with a 6-1 win over Southern Illinois last weekend. Memphis will play a non-conference match against Troy, Tuesday, at 2:30 p.m. at Wellworx.
