    NORMAL, Ill.- The Southern Illinois women's tennis team's three match win streak came to an end Saturday in Normal, Ill., as Illinois State defeated SIU, 5-2.

    Recording the lone win in singles for the Salukis (15-5, 4-2 MVC) was sophomore Anita Lee who defeated Emmie Marx in three sets, 6-1, 4-6, 6-4 at the No. 2 spot. Melanie Delsart fell for just the fifth time this season, losing her match at the No. 1 slot, 6-4, 6-3.

    "We played well today, but they played even better," said head coach Audra Nothwehr. "We just need to play our game, and today we didn't."

    Delsart and partner Korey Love defeated their Redbird counterparts 8-2 at No. 1 doubles, while Jennifer Dien and Natasha Tomishima clinched the doubles point for Southern, winning their match 8-2.

    The Salukis will be back in action tomorrow to close out the regular season against the Bradley Braves in Peoria, first serve is slated for 10 a.m.
