Blue Raiders look to regroup in Lafayette
Match is fourth straight on the roadMarch 11, 2010 · Athletic Communications
MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - The Middle Tennessee women's tennis team will look to bounce back and claim its first victory in nearly two weeks when it travels to Lafayette, La., Friday to face the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns at 2 p.m.
"We still have a bad taste in our mouths from the loss to Florida Atlantic," head coach Alison Ojeda said. "The only way to get rid of it is to get on the court again and compete. We look forward to tomorrow's match. Louisiana has a new coach who is really working hard to get her players to understand the same type of fundamentals we are. It should be a great match."
The Blue Raiders are 5-4 on the campaign entering the contest and are coming off two hard-fought losses in Florida. Middle Tennessee fell 5-2 to then-No. 49 FIU before dropping a 4-3 decision to Florida Atlantic Monday.
Louisiana brings a 2-6 record to the courts Friday, having lost four straight, including away matches at nationally-ranked UCF and FIU. Julie Mazinova leads the Ragin' Cajuns with a 6-2 slate, playing primarily at the No. 2 singles position.
The match will be held at the Cajun Courts in Lafayette, La.
