PHOENIX, Ariz. – The UMKC women’s tennis team (3-10) looking for its first win of conference play could not keep pace with Grand Canyon and dropped its second game in as many days with a score of 6-1.
It was a similar result in singles play for the Roos as the No. 1-5 spots could not clinch points during the match-ups against the Lopes. Grechkina would tie up her match-up in the No. 4 spot but would fall short in the third set with a 10-4 tiebreaker.
The bright spot for UMKC in singles play came from Thanushree Vale who claimed the lone point of the match for the Roos with a 10-8 tiebreaker in the third set of the match-up.
UMKC has now fallen to 3-10 on the year, two games under last season’s mark through 13 games.
