Both Truman State University’s men’s and women’s tennis teams competed against Quincy University last Friday for their first spring home meets.
Friday’s matches served as the first GLVC meets on both the men’s and women’s records. Both teams have five remaining GLVC meets and will be competing and traveling together for the remainder of the semester.
The women’s team won their meet 6-3, taking five singles matches and one doubles match. Senior Lindsey Schlichting and junior Maura Dunn took the top women’s doubles match and both their singles matches. Freshman Alexandra Rogers, sophomore Kaylin Albin and junior Finessa Rassel also won their singles matches.
The men’s team, however, lost their meet 8-1. Quincy swept the singles matches, but senior Paul Province and freshman Arpit Sahoo snatched the Bulldog men’s only win in the top doubles match.
The men and women will travel for an away match 2 p.m. Friday against Rockhurst University.
