Despite battling through several close matches last weekend, the Harvard women's tennis team came up empty in dual matches during its three-day road trip to Louisiana.
After losing 8-1 to No.26 LSU on Sunday, the team came out strong Monday in singles competition against No. 40 Tulane but could not pull off a victory, losing 6-3.
Harvard's spring record in dual matches this season dropped to 1-2 after the weekend's losses but learned valuable lessons after competing against nationally ranked schools.
"I think we played great," captain Vedica Jain said. "They were both tough teams, and we were close in almost every match."
The 8-1 loss to LSU Sunday may not seem like a close match, with the Crimson's only victory coming from sophomore Jenny Timoney playing in the No. 6 spot.
However, several other Crimson players went to three sets during their matches, including a 7-6 loss in the third set by sophomore Andrea Magyera in the No. 4 slot.
"In the singles we had a lot of close three-set matches that could have gone either way, but that we ended up losing," freshman Sanja Bajin said.
On Monday against Tulane, the team at one point looked to be on its way to winning during singles' competition, with Harvard winning five of its first six sets.
