Ladyjacks Shutout by Lamar
April 14, 2013
The Lamar Lady Cardinal tennis team turned the emotion of senior day into a 7-0 shutout victory over Stephen F. Austin Sunday afternoon at the Municipal Tennis Center in Beaumont, Texas. The loss drops SFA a match under .500 (10-11) on the season, and 5-3 (.625) in conference play with one match remaining.
The Lady Cardinals took the first lead of the match as SFA uncharacteristically dropped the doubles point. The Ladyjacks were unable to recover dropping all six singles matches in straight sets. Junior Laura Servise put up a strong battle at No. 6 singles before bowing out to LU's Alessandra Pennesi, 7-5, 7-6.
The Ladyjacks return to action Saturday when they travel to Texarkana, Texas to face Central Arkansas in a rescheduled match that was postponed earlier this season. The match is slated to begin at 12:30 p.m.
