OXFORD, OH – The University of Toledo women's tennis team saw its season end n the first round of the Mid-American Conference Tournament on Friday with a 4-1 loss to Buffalo.

The Rockets completed the season with an overall record of 14-7

Toledo won the doubles point, taking two of the three matches on the day to grab the first point in the match.

Junior Lexy Pitt and sophomore Emily Mazzola teamed up for an 8-1 record in the top doubles spot, while the duo of sophomore Katelyn Nguyen and junior Pia Rygh completed an 8-7 victory in a tiebreaker in the No. 2 doubles spot.

The Rockets were unable to keep the momentum going, however, as they lost four consecutive singles matchups, and the Bulls clinched the match.
