    Cincinnati, Ohio - The Salukis just fell short of picking up their first victory of the year as they were defeated in a hard fought match by Cincinnati.

    Senior Tana Trapani picked up her first win of the early spring season as she defeated Julie Kauck, 7-5, 6-1, at the No. 4 spot, while sophomore Zuzana Palovic contributed by knocking off Kirby Doron 6-0, 6-3.

    Sophomore Maria Blanco gave a valiant effort, but was defeated at the No. 2 spot by Cristina Reyes in three sets, 6-3, 5-7, 6-4. Along with Blanco sophomore Zoya Honarmand also pushed her match against Jill Klauck to a third set super tie breaker, but was defeated in a grueling match, 3-6, 6-4, 13-11.

    The Salukis next matches will be in Richmond, Ky. where they will compete against Wright State, East Tenn. St and Eastern Kentucky on Feb. 14-15.
