Baylor women’s tennis team had a tough weekend in Charlottesville, Va., at the ITA National Team Indoor Championships.
The team opened up against No. 2 Duke with a 4-2 loss. Despite the loss, head coach Joey Scrivano was pleased with the focus and mentality from the team compared to last weekend’s match against No. 1 University of Florida.
“We just have to keep improving and tomorrow take our focus to another level,” Scrivano said. “We have to become a more disciplined team.”
The highlight of the weekend came during Saturday’s match against No. 9 Alabama. The Lady Bears made a tremendous comeback after being down 3-0. The team was able to tie the match at 3-3 with three straight singles victories before dropping the match 4-3.
To finish out the weekend, the Bears met up against No. 17 Nebraska in the final match of the championship.
This was the first in the last 18 matches that the Bears lost to the Cornhuskers.
The Lady Bears have now lost four straight games against top-20 opponents.
They will look to bounce back next weekend with two home matches on Saturday and Sunday against No. 21 Vanderbilt and No. 33 Pepperdine.
