BEAUMONT, Texas – The fifth-seeded Stephen F. Austin Ladyjack tennis team was unable to keep pace with the fourth-seeded Northwestern State, falling 4-1 Friday afternoon in the quarterfinals of the Southland Conference Women’s Tennis Championship at the Beaumont Municipal Tennis Center in Beaumont, Texas.
After dropping the doubles point to the Lady Demons (12-7), SFA (10-13) was only able to muster one victory in singles play. Sophomore Malena Gordo defeated Polina Konop (7-5, 6-2) in No. 1 singles, before NSU rattled off consecutive victories No. 2 and 3 to take the match.
The loss marks the end of the season for the ‘Jacks, who had no seniors on the squad.
