"We play a tough preseason schedule in order to prepare us for conference play," said Head Coach Amanda Pratzel.

Sierra Halverson and Haley Ilcewicz did not finish their matches after SIU Carbondale secured the win, but each was leading before the match score became final.

"We put ourselves in a position to win against a good team but some matches just didn't go our way," said Pratzel.

The Cougars travel to California this weekend for their spring break trip. Their first opponent is Villanova Saturday, March 7 at 3 p.m.
