PITTSBURGH – The University of Pittsburgh tennis team (8-10, 2-3) suffered its fourth-straight setback on Sunday afternoon as the Panthers lost to Cincinnati (10-7, 2-3) by the score of 6-1 at Alpha Tennis and Fitness Center.
"It was great to honor our seniors today, but unfortunately we were not able to get the win for them," interim head coach Michaela Kissell-Eddins said. "Cincinnati played well today and we would love to play them again in the Big East Tournament. We look to bounce right back against CMU on Wednesday and get a win in our regular-season finale as we head towards the Big East Tournament."
Playing in doubles together for the first time this season, Kimmy Borza and Taylor Washington were victorious on court two as the tandem outlasted Witte/Sullivan by the score of 9-7. Cincinnati however, recorded wins on courts one and three to capture the doubles point.
In singles, Molly Wickman was the only Panther to notch a victory. Wickman won fifth singles over Hannah Wille in straight sets, 6-4, 6-3.
The Panthers end the regular-season on Wednesday afternoon against Carnegie Mellon. The match is set for 4 p.m. at the CMU outdoor tennis facilities.
