CINCINNATI – The University of Cincinnati women’s tennis team wrapped up three days of play at the Hoosier Classic hosted by Indiana over the weekend.

Weather and rain throughout the weekend caused several changes to the original singles and doubles brackets, with some matches eventually being moved indoors.

“I came away from the weekend feeling very positive about our team,” stated head coach Angela Wilson. “I thought we competed very well and picked up wins over some strong teams. The fall tournaments are always about getting some matches in against other teams, testing our doubles combinations and evaluating our strengths and weaknesses to prepare for the spring.”
