Alton High Coach Macias said: "It was warm today but both teams handled it well. I don't think either team has ever played a ten-game pro set, but that didn't favor anyone either. Marquette played well and beat us today.
"We really got down in singles and then we played great in doubles and had a chance to win the match, we just couldn't pull it off. I'm proud of the boys for battling. Now we need to bounce right back because we have conference on Friday."
Alton is 9-10 overall.
