The men and women’s tennis teams headed to sunny Las Vegas for spring break, but returned to Wisconsin winless.

The men lost to No. 53 Utah 4-3 Friday in a hard fought match. Marquette was unable to secure the doubles point, putting Utah up one to start the match. Junior Vukasin Teofanovic (No. 2 singles), freshman Nick Dykema (No. 4 singles) and junior Cameron Tehrani (No. 5 singles) brought in the three points for Marquette during singles play.

Two days later, the men’s team fell to the Nevada – Las Vegas, 5-2. Doubles partners senior Logon Collins and sophomore Gleb Sklyr won at second doubles, but the team was unable to pull out another doubles win for a point. Sklyr brought in 1 point at No. 6 singles while Dykema won at No. 4 singles, giving Marquette it’s second and final point of the day.

Regardless of their shaky spring break, the men are still nationally ranked at No. 70. The team’s next match will be in Idaho Friday against Montana.

The women’s team faced the same fate against UNLV, dropping a 5-2 to start off its spring break. Sophomore Erin Gebes went undefeated for the day winning at No. 3 singles and at second doubles with partner senior Rocio Diaz. Gebes and Diaz were the only doubles team to win for Marquette and UNLV claimed the doubles point. Sophomore Laia Hernandez-Soler scored Marquette its last point by winning at No. 5 singles.

The women then went on to be swept by No. 56 ranked Ohio State at every position; the final score was 7-0. Junior Ana Pimienta was the only player to win a set against the tough Buckeyes team.

The women’s next match will be a doubleheader hosted at home against Illinois State and IUPUI on Friday, March 21. The first match against Illinois State is scheduled to start at 1 p.m.
