Women’s tennis runs into tough competition on East Coast, lose third A-10 match of year

SLU Women’s Tennis lost all three matches of their Atlantic 10 Conference regular season road trip. First, the Billikens were edged by Duquesne, 4-3. Then, they lost to VCU 6-1 and fell to George Washington 5-2. SLU’s overall record now stands at 5-6, with the three straight losses bringing them under the .500 mark.

SLU’s loss to Duquesne was close, with SLU winning the doubles point. In addition, sophomore Ally McKenzie and freshman Cassie McKenzie won their singles matches. However, the four singles matches that Duquesne won proved to be too much for the Billikens, who fell by one point.

SLU then traveled to Richmond, Va. to take on the VCU Rams. Freshman Mariluz Rojo Domingo was the only Billiken that managed to win, with VCU taking the other five singles matches and the doubles point on offer. Rojo Domingo overcame a first-set loss to earn her win in three sets against the Rams. While SLU lost the doubles point, the twin pair of seniors Eleonore and Verginie Tchakarova won their respective doubles match 7-6.

SLU then wrapped up their road trip with a visit to the nation’s capital, Washington, D.C. Verginie Tchakarova won her singles match and her doubles match when paired with Eleonore Tchakarova, to provide a successful individual performance. The Billikens will return to their home court at St. Clair Tennis Club in O’Fallon, Ill. to face Missouri State on Friday, March 3. On Saturday, March 4, the Billikens will be at home again, playing Western Illinois.
