MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - The second day of action at the MT Buck Bouldin Fall Classic was postponed until late afternoon due to inclement weather in the Murfreesboro area, prompting the scheduled matches to be split between Saturday and Sunday. The remaining doubles and singles action will be contested Sunday at the Buck Bouldin Tennis Center to conclude the event.

The host Blue Raiders were able to garner one win in doubles action, as Marietta Bigus and Taylor Coffey defeated Chattanooga's Charlotte Bossy and Brianna Wishing, 8-0. MT's Alex Dachos paired with the Lady Mocs' Jennifer Taylor, but the duo lost 8-4 to Murray State's Alexis Webb and Ashley Canty.

In singles action, four Middle Tennessee players picked up victories. Three of the triumphs were in straight sets with only Natalie Araya's match with Taylor going the full distance before she secured a 6-1, 3-6, 6-3 victory.

Yuiri Nomoto handed Murray State's Cassidy Cunitz a 6-0, 6-2 setback, while Coffey posted a 6-0, 6-2 win against Chattanooga's Jennemieke van der Veek. The other Blue Raider victory was a 6-1, 6-3 decision by Carla Nava over Murray State's Lyndsay Ottosen.
