In a match against Western Michigan University (10-4, 1-1 MAC), the Eastern Michigan University tennis team (3-4, 0-2 MAC) fell to the Broncos 5-2, March 24.
Western Michigan claimed the No. 1 after efforts by Sabina Brichackova and Prerna Vichare, 6-4.
No. 2 went unfinished despite Daniella Shved and Wanyi Zhang being projected to win at the spot, and Western Michigan went on to claim No. 3.
In singles, EMU won two matches, and Vichare forced a third set dropping the set, 2-6, 6-4, 2-6.
