(Las Vegas, Nev.) - The UMKC women's tennis team made it a clean sweep, defeating Southern Utah on the final day of the Summit League Cluster at Bally's, 4-3.

The 'Roos (8-7, 4-0 SL) jumped out to a 1-0 lead after taking two of the three doubles wins, getting help from the Thunderbirds, who played without a No. 6 player. Freshman Maddie Schulte took a straight set win at No. 5 to make it 3-0 (after SUU forfeited at No. 6), before SUU grabbed the next two in straight sets to cut it to one at the No. 3 and 4 spots.

The No. 1 and 2 positions went down to the wire, with both going to a decisive third set, and UMKC junior Laura Bouet came through with the win to help UMKC grab the dual.

UMKC finished the weekend with a 4-0 record, defeating South Dakota, IUPUI and Western Illinois on the first two days.

The 'Roos will play Northwest Missouri State on March 26 in its next action.
