It was a two-and-a-half-hour rain delay game while the Texas State Women’s tennis team traveled to San Antonio earlier today and competed against UTSA at the UTSA Tennis Center.

Unfortunately for the Bobcats, they were not able to strive against UTSA and were defeated against the Roadrunners 1-4.

Only one of the singles match went into three sets, while three of the singles matches went into just two sets.

Texas State’s, Eva Dench, junior, competed against Roadrunner’s, Miriam Rosell Canudas, junior, and won in the first set 6-3, but lost the second and third set both, 2-6.

Dench also paired with Pippa Carr, junior, in the doubles competition, and the duo went against UTSA’s Lina Hallgren, junior, and Charlene Tiwari, freshman. The Bobcats won this match against the Roadrunners 6-3.

Carr also lost in her singles competition against Roadrunner, Alena Shickova, senior, 5-7 in both the first and second set.

Another win made by Texas State in the double competition was made by Katy Collins, senior, and Ammaarah Tim, freshman. This duo competed against Sonia Madronal Medina, sophomore, and Shichkova, and beat this UTSA doubles duo 7-6.

Collins also fell short to Tiwari in her singles competition, but after three sets the game went unfinished.

Another unfinished game was played by Ana Perez, freshman, against Hallgren, while the first set was won by Perez 3-6 and the second set was a tie 6-6.
