Both the UNO men's and women's tennis teams earned victories over Nebraska-Wesleyan last Friday, dominating the Prairie Wolves by a combined score of 13-1. The Mavs won six doubles matches and all but one of 12 singles matches.
The women's tennis team achieved a team goal by defeating a fellow Division I team on Monday then followed it up with victories in two of their final three matches.
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.
Men's tennis went from peaks to valleys in midweek action, sweeping Concordia 7-0 then facing defeat by the same margin in a 7-0 loss to Creighton. Wednesday the Mavs rolled, winning all singles and doubles matches en route to the sweep of Concordia. Less than 24 hours later the tables were turned, and it was Creighton getting the clean sweep against UNO.
The UNO men's and women's tennis team swept Hastings on Saturday afternoon, and the women dropped a 6-1 decision at Sioux Falls Wednesday. The men won 4-3 on the strength of a strong start in doubles, and the women overwhelmed the Broncos 7-0.
After picking up wins in each of their previous matches, UNO men's and women's tennis both lost last week at the Hanscom Brandeis Tennis Center. Both teams now face a tough road slate, which won't have them back in Omaha until March 29.
The men play one more in Omaha on March 9 against Oral Roberts, then hit the road for matches at Hilton Head, S.C. The women play their next three matches in Des Moines, three more after that in Kansas City, then join the men's team in South Carolina mid March.
