Women’s Tennis dominates UCA 6-1 at home on Tuesday
Coming into the match, the team was 1-3 after losing two games against SIU-Carbondale and UT Martin, and the win over the Bears gave the Red Wolves a 2-3 record. Both the doubles teams of junior Tamara Slijepcevic and senior Janie Nowland, as well as senior Biljana Miloshevska and freshman Julie Gauguery, propelled the team to victory as they won the doubles section. A-State tennis hopes to improve to 4-3 when they travel to Troy, Ala. this weekend challenging Kennesaw State on Saturday and Troy on Sunday.
Men’s baseball wins big over SEMO 8-3 following a rough weekend series.
Coming off the bad weekend, the Red Wolves needed a win to put them back on track. SEMO jumped out to an early two run lead, but junior pitcher Tanner Gaines and freshmen pitchers Bryan Ayers and Colton Kibler shut down the Red Hawks, only allowing one run in the final six innings. The win improved A-State’s record to 5-4. The team travels to Birmingham, Ala. for a three game stint against Alabama-Birmingham this Friday through Sunday.

The team is playing solid this season, posting a 17-9 record overall with a 9-5 conference record, giving them third place in the Sun Belt. A-State came into the game on a three-game winning streak and that confidence showed. The defense set a record when they held Lyon College to just 15 points in the second half, which eclipsed the previous record of 18 against Texas-Pan American in 1996. They head to Little Rock to challenge rivals UALR on Saturday March 1st.
