Ashland University's women's tennis team lost its first match on its trip south against Francis Marion on Monday (March 4).
"We suffered a tough loss today against a good team in Francis Marion," said Ashland's assistant women's tennis coach Christian Hamilton. "We have several things we will be working on in practices as we progress through the season."
Ashland lost the match 6-1, the Eagles' only point coming from doubles, where they managed to win two of three matches and take the point.
The Eagles can move on quickly, as they have another match on Wednesday (March 6) at Coastal Carolina.
