Short-Handed Lady Tiger Tennis Team Falls 7-0
March 28, 2006
MEMPHIS, Tenn. - Playing without No. 2 singles player Brooke Cowie and No. 3 singles player Kristin Noble, the Lady Tigers fell 7-0 to visiting Troy University at WellWorx in a non-conference match, Tuesday.
Memphis was forced to default the No. 3 doubles match with just five healthy players, and suffered an 8-1 loss at No. 1 and an 8-2 loss at No. 2 doubles to fall behind 1-0 early. With a forfeit at No. 6 singles, Memphis was down 2-0 with everyone from No. 4 and back in the singles roster playing up two slots. The result was a Troy University sweep that dropped the Lady Tigers to 3-10 on the season.
Memphis will have a little more than a week to get healthy, as the Lady Tigers next host Auburn-Montgomery, Apr. 7th.
