The UConn women's tennis team concluded their season this past Thursday, losing to the University of Cincinnati Bearcats 4-1 in their opening match of the American Athletic Conference Championships.
Senior Lucy Nutting got the sole point for the Huskies against the Bearcats, winning her No. 4 singles match against Cincinnati's Katya Bure. Nutting would lose just three games in that match, winning it 6-2, 6-1.
Sophomore Srna Stosljevic forced a tiebreak in her No. 1 singles match against Kelly Poggensee-Wei, before losing the first set 6-7. Poggensee-Wei opened up a two-break advantage in the second however, taking the match 7-6, 6-2.
Freshman Emma Alderman dropped the first set of the No. 2 singles match to Cincinnati's Ashleigh Witte, getting blanked 0-6. Alderman kept the match closer in the second set, but ultimately dropped the match to Witte, 0-6, 4-6.
Cincinnati and UConn met once before this season, contesting a dual meet on Feb. 28. The Bearcats were also victorious in that matchup, winning five of six singles matches and two of three doubles matches for a 6-1 victory.
The Huskies finish the 2013-14 season with an 8-12 record. The season marked head coach Glenn Marshall's 21st season at UConn. Three seniors, Nutting, Jennifer Learmonth and Marie Gargiulio, played their last matches for UConn in the tournament meet.
