BEARS FALL SHORT IN HOME RETURN AGAINST ULM – University of Central Arkansas Athletics

CONWAY, Ark. , Central Arkansas tennis could not muster enough, as they dropped a close one against the University of Louisiana-Monroe.

The Bears could not get the last laugh in a heated affair, as they were outscored 4-2 in singles play. This trend of success in doubles and falling short in singles continued as UCA won their seventh straight doubles point but fell to 4-3 in that stretch. Highlighting the doubles play is important, as the Bears dominated both matches that finished with a combined 12-5 score. However, it began to derail a little bit when the singles section of the dual happened. In singles play, UCA’s top two dropped their matches in two sets, and then No. 4 and No. 6 followed. While it was a tough day for singles, one of the largest bright spots was sophomore Jaeun Lee, After being sidelined for a concussion, this was Lee’s first match back, and she showed her importance to the team as she rallied to overcome a starting deficit in a three-set thriller.
