One of the goals for head coach Mike Saniuk and the UNO tennis teams in 2012 was to get a win over a fellow Division I team. As the week began at Western Illinois, that goal was quickly slipping away.
The UNO women's tennis team traveled to Kansas City Friday afternoon, dropping a morning matchup with UMKC 6-1 then rebounding to defeat Emporia State 6-3 in the afternoon. In the two matches, Mav doubles only picked up one win while singles were a combined 5-7.
The UNO men's tennis team split weekend action in Kansas City, falling to UMKC 7-0 Friday morning then dropping Emporia State 6-3 in the afternoon. Though the Mavs were unable to earn any points against UMKC, one of the Summit League's best squads, UNO quickly pushed the loss under the rug and went back on the court to sweep doubles and split singles against Emporia State.
