The women’s tennis team lost its last regular-season match to the University of Central Oklahoma on Saturday but defeated Southern Nazarene University the day before.

In Friday’s match, the Belles won 7-2. After this match, they had an overall record of 15-7 and 3-3 in Lone Star Conference play.

ASU received the first doubles point from the team of freshman Ena Ovcina and sophomore Maria Delgadillo, who won their match 8-2.

Sophomore Yasmine Ansari and freshman Lucia Maitrot won their match as well, making them 3-2 as a pair for the year.

Freshmen Zoe Gubbels and Virginie Becht got the next win 8-5. This freshman team continued undefeated with a perfect record of 6-0 on the season.

Sophomore Melanie Druex got the first singles win, defeating her opponent 6-0, 6-2. 

Gubbels also got a win of 6-3 and 6-2 to secure the win for the Belles.

Ansari received a win as well, beating her opponent 6-2, 7-5. 

Maitrot got the final and seventh point for the team.

In Saturday’s match, the Belles lost 0-5. They finished their first spring season of play since 1986 with an overall record of 15-8 and 6-6 in the Lone Star Conference play.

The Belles lost all three doubles points on the day.

The teams of Ovcina and Degadillo and Ansari and Maitrot both lost their matches 8-3.

Becht and Gubbels had an early 3-1 lead in their match. Their opponent tied the match 5-5 and then moved to 8-6 to win the match. This loss was the team’s first this season.

The two teams agreed to play match clinch, which would mean that the team to score five points would win before going into the singles play. 

Becht and Gubbels lost their matches, securing the win for the other team. 

The Belles will now start preparation for the Lone Star Conference postseason tournament on April 20-21 in Corpus Christi.
