Men and Women both fall to UW-Badgers

Hello all, both the UW-Whitewater men's and women's teams got a terrific chance to play some high level tennis this weekend as they each took on the Big Ten UW-Badgers on Saturday afternoon.

We were able to push the Badgers during several of the sets played, but we ended up losing each match in straigh sets.  Although we were not able to pick up any individual wins, I felt that everyone competed at a strong level and fought to the end.  Some of the higlights were Byron Balkin taking his opponent to a second set tiebreak at #1 singles, Kalla Schaefer was up 4-3 at #1 for the ladies before her opponent buckled down.  Andrew Bayliss, Megan Kasten, Erik Scanlan, Mitch Osborne all had great efforts and tight second sets.

In doubles our #1 women's team played great tennis and Scanlan/Friend almost made a comeback after trailing 2-7.  Rademacher/Laktash at exhibition were able to take a 6-5 lead in their doubles match before losing 8-6 to Jack Larsen/Teppert.

We leave on Thursday to play 10 matches on Spring Break between the two teams in beautiful Hilton Head Island, SC.  Follow us down there by following us on UWW TENNIS TWITTER or UWW TENNIS FACEBOOK
