NIU women’s tennis: Huskies suffer first loss of season

By Northern Star staff

Women’s tennis was served its first taste of defeat over the weekend as it lost to the Southern Illinois Salukis.

The Huskies (8-1) lost to the Salukis (3-6), 4-3, Saturday in Carbondale. It was NIU’s first road contest since a 4-3 win over the Cleveland State Vikings Jan. 25 in Cleveland, Ohio.

The Huskies failed to pick up the doubles point for the first time this season, which played a big part in their one-point loss. They split the six singles matches with the Salukis.
