ARLINGTON, Texas - The Texas-Arlington women's tennis team lost a hard-fought match to Southeastern Louisiana, 4-3, Saturday afternoon.
Texas-Arlington (1-7, 1-1 SLC) started the day off by winning two of the three doubles matches to garner the doubles point.
SE Louisiana (8-2, 2-0 SLC) rebounded to win four of the six singles matches to defeat Texas-Arlington, 4-3.
Freshman Klara Jagosova defeated Breda Kovac, 6-1, 6-3, at the number one singles position, while junior Monika Peciulionyte had the other victory for the Lady Mavericks, defeating Jana Simurkova, 7-6, 6-0, at the number four position.

This loss was Texas-Arlington's first in regular-season conference play since 2002.
