    Murray, Ky.- The Southern Illinois women's tennis teamd dropped a heartbreaker to Murray State 4-3 Wednesday afternoon.

    The Salukis lost the doubles point as they only picked up one win as Vishakha Sheoran and Martina Vianna Ce defeated Lynsey Bochenek and Katelyn Fulcher in No. 3 doubles.

    Head coach Audra Nothwehr said because of a few injuries, the Salukis haven't been able to compete to the fullest.

    Fadzai Mawisire remained perfect in her career at SIU as she defeated Cassidy Cunitz in No. 1 singles.

    Ame Blacketer and Michela Cruise also collected wins at No. 3 and No. 5 singles, respectively.
