Championship Bound, Women’s Tennis Survives Tight Semifinal Match with SBU

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – The No. 28-ranked University of Indianapolis women’s tennis team made it another step towards yet another GLVC Championship on Saturday, downing the west’s 2-seed Southwest Baptist by a score of 4-2. The Hounds will meet Rockhurst for the title on Sunday.

HOW IT HAPPENED

The Hounds, who have been a singles dominant team all season, faltered in doubles, dropping the point after losses at the No. 1 and No. 3 courts. Tyffaine Pais and Ana Hollweg were the Hounds one victory in doubles.

With it tied 2-2, Maria Fiacan and Jimena De Pablos Hernando iced the match with back-to-back straight sets wins and sent the Hounds to the finals.
