ARLINGTON, Texas— The UT Arlington men’s tennis team fell 4-1 to Western Athletic Conference and in-state rival UTSA Saturday, March 30 at the UTA Tennis Center.
"It was a hard fought match today," UT Arlington coach Diego Benitez said. "We clinched the doubles with great agressive play. The guys left it all on the courting in singles, but it wasn't enough."

UTA’s momentum would end there. The UTSA roadrunners won at four singles positions to clinch the match and improve to 2-0 in conference play.
The Mavericks dropped to 6-10 overall and 0-2 in league play.
