UMBC Defeats Women's Tennis, 7-0

BALTIMORE, Md. – Mary Wilson (Greensburg, Pa.) and Adrienne Markison (Princeton, N.J.) paired to win at No. 1 doubles, but the Quinnipiac University women's tennis team was defeated at Maryland-Baltimore County, 7-0, Wednesday afternoon. With the loss, the Bobcats move to 4-6, while the Retrievers improve to 3-3.

Wilson and Markison defeated Alice Chen and Carmen Jackman, 8-5, at No. 1 doubles, but the Bobcats fell in the other two matches to drop the doubles point. The Bobcats then fell in straight sets in each of the six singles flights.

The Bobcats return to action Friday, when they travel to Emmitsburg, Md., to take on Northeast Conference foe Mount St. Mary's. Matches are slated to begin at 2 p.m.
