Loyola tennis drops two-match day

Sat, 03/22/2014

(Jackson, Miss.) The Loyola University New Orleans men’s and women’s tennis teams fell to Belhaven University and Alcorn State University on Saturday.

The Loyola women (5-8, 3-4 SSAC) dropped a 3-6 decision to the Blazers (8-5, 2-1 SSAC). Junior Meghan de Baroncelli, sophomore Kanda Borgognoni picked up the only doubles victory for the Pack. De Baroncelli and freshman Melissa van Wuijckhuijse picked up Loyola’s singles wins.

The Loyola men (3-10, 0-6 SSAC) were swept by the No. 9 ranked Belhaven men’s squad (10-3, 3-0 SSAC).

Both the Wolf Pack men and women’s squads were defeated by Alcorn State’s men (6-6) and women (3-7), 4-0 and 4-0. The matches were played by Division I rules, therefore four matches won were enough to decide the winner.

Loyola tennis will be back in action on Saturday, March 28 in Atlanta, Ga. versus Bethel University and Martin Methodist College beginning at 9 a.m.
