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 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.
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.
When the week began, the UNO men's tennis team was looking at the possibility of going the year without a win over a fellow Division I team. But a 4-3 win over Western Illinois on Monday guaranteed that wouldn't happen.
