USI women’s tennis falls in first round of the NCAA II Tournament

The University of Southern Indiana women’s tennis team lost a 5-0 decision to Grand Valley State University in the first round of the NCAA Division II Tournament Thursday at the Place-Midland Community Tennis Center in Midland, Michigan. The Screaming Eagles, making their first appearance in the national tournament, finish the year with a 12-6 overall record in 2002-03.
