The Red Wolves women’s tennis team set out to claim their first victory of the season against Murray State this past weekend, but ultimately fell to the Racers 6-1, snapping a 10 match losing streak for the Racers.

Freshman Julie Gauguery recorded A-State’s only point of the match with a 7-5, 6-1 straight set victory over Murray State’s Sophomore Megan Blue. Senior Janie Nowland fell to the Racers’ senior Carla Suga by a score of 6-2, 4-6, 10-3, and junior Tamara Slijepcevic fell to junior Andrea Eskauriatza in the No. 1 single matchup in straight sets 6-2, 6-4.

Senior Biljana Milosheveska lost to freshman Elonore Tchakarova 6-4, 6-2 while sophomores Sofia Krsmanovic and Chiara Stefanov lost shortened singles matches by scores of 8-2 and 8-4 to Verginie Tchakarova and sophomore Erin Patton.

“Julie played great singles and I’m proud of the way she competed,” Head Coach Marina Engelbrecht said in a press release. “It was a disappointing start for us. We look to learn from this and come back a stronger team next weekend.”

Murray State won the doubles match point with Erin Tchakarova and Verginie Tchakarova taking a 6-4 decision over A-State’s Tamara Slijepcevic and Janie Nowland.

The Racers’ Andrea Eskauriatza and Erin Patton defeated A-State’s Biljana Milosheveska and Chiara Stefanov 6-2.

The Red Wolves’ Julie Gauguery and Sofia Krsmanovic were leading Murray State’s Carla Suga and Megan Blue 5-4, but their match was not completed.

A-State returns to the courts at 9 a.m. on Feb. 7 to play Tyler Junior College, the first of three matches the Red Wolves will play in Huntsville, Texas.
