MU splits matches

On March 11 and March 12, Marquette split matches against No. 23 Michigan and Wisconsin-Green Bay, losing 7-0 before rebounding with a 6-1 win, respectively.

"We could've played a lot better against Michigan, you know, we should've been in those matches," said Marquette head coach Jody Bronson. "Against Green Bay some of us stepped up, but others didn't seem to get better. We need to show improvement every match."

Sophomore Maria Calbeto has re-assumed No. 1 singles duty after battling a groin injury earlier this year. She led the Golden Eagles attack against UW-GB, winning both her singles and doubles matches.

"I was happy with the way I played," Calbeto said. "I played like I had practiced the week leading up to the Michigan and UW-GB matches, so I was pleased."

While Calbeto suffered a 6-1, 6-1 defeat to Michigan's No. 71-ranked Kara Delicata, Bronson said it was a strong effort regardless.

The squad is now 4-11 overall and will play a home doubleheader against Chicago State and South Dakota State, two winnable matches, starting at 9 a.m. Saturday.
