Around the League

  • The UMBC men’s tennis team’s seven-game winning streak was snapped by Seattle (6-11), who rallied for a 4-3 victory over the Retrievers.

The Retrievers (9-5) fell to host Nevada, 6-1, who was led by a power dual of No. 32 ranked Ouvard and Allan, the following day.
  • The UMBC women's tennis team (6-6) won singles matches one through five and defeated Seattle, 5-2, Sunday, March 16. The Retrievers dropped the double point, but did not drop a set in the first four singles positions to clinch the match. Senior Kim Berghaus set the table as she won (6-2, 6-3) at No. 1, while senior captain Josefin Stange-Jonsson provided insurance with a three-set victory at the No. 5 position. Stange-Jonsson, who is 2-0 in singles on the western trip, rallied to edge out her opponent, 5-7, 7-6 (10-8), 10-5.
