Women's Tennis Splits Non-Conference Matches in the Hoosier State; Evens Record to 8-8

ADRIAN, Mich.--The Adrian College women's tennis team stepped out of conference play on Thursday by traveling to Indiana, losing at Manchester University, 7-2, in North Manchester before bouncing back to down Indiana-East by the same result in Richmond. The Bulldogs are now 8-8 on the season.

Against the IUE Hoosiers, Adrian and the hosts sped up their match with lone sets due to darkness and the Bulldogs picked up two forfeit wins as the Hoosiers didn't have enough players.

Adrian sophomore Amber Laginess owns a 13-match winning streak in singles and now improves to 15-1 on the season.

The Bulldogs are back in action on Wednesday when they resume Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association action versus St. Mary's (Ind.) at home at the Craft Tennis Complex.
