It was Wildcats vs Wildcats when the ladies matched up against the University of Kentucky.

Unfortunately, the pressure was too much and the purple and white fell short against UK, 2-5.

The team won two of three of the doubles matches and Laura Mongin was the only to win her singles match, playing Kristen Lewis 7-5, 3-6, 6-3.

“The matches were tough but we knew they were going to be hard,” Mongin said. “Everyone of us gave our best on the court.”

While the ladies ended their stay in Kentucky with disappointment, the men’s team celebrated their third straight victory, Wednesday.

The team took on the University of the Texas Permian Basin, adding a 9-0 win to their belts.

The wildcats won all of their singles and doubles matches.

Hans Hach and Guilherme Gesser both had a 6-2, 6-1 victory in their singles matches.

Nicklas Wingord earned a well deserved 6-4, 6-7, 13-11 win against Jonathan Rutledge.

Duo Hach and Wingord defeated Alcaro Sifuentes and Austin Fowler 9-8 (7-1). Alfredo Desiati and Gesser defeated Rutledge and Vicente Veck 8-5.

The women’s team will play the University of the Southwest and Barry University next week. The men will travel to Waco and Austin to play Temple College, Baylor, and St. Edwards.

“[Baylor] will show us things we don’t see with the schools we dominate,” assistant coach John Walker said. “We’ll be relaxed, they’re the ones with the pressure.”
