Falcon tennis sends out three seniors with split

The BG women’s tennis team ended their regular season this weekend, blanking Ball State 7-0 Friday and falling to Miami with a close 4-3 Saturday. The Falcons end their season and go into the Mid-American Conference Championships this weekend with a 12-6 overall (5-3 MAC) record. Senior Kelsey Jakupcin is proud of her team and said they fought hard against Miami. ‘We feel so great about this past weekend,’ Jakupcin said. ‘We had beautiful weather and played the absolute best competition in Miami. We had an amazing sweep against Ball State and our energy carried over to our match with Miami, and we played our best.’ With their loss, BSU is seeded in last place for the MAC Championships with a 0-8 MAC record. Miami improved their record to 8-0 and has the top seed. Jakupcin is looking forward to having a few days to practice before the tournament, as there are a few things the team wants to brush up on. ‘Our team is going to be practicing our doubles a lot,’ Jakupcin said. ‘We came out strong and firing this weekend and were able to get the doubles point in both matches, which was crucial. We will be practicing on the old Keefe courts since we will play there the first round in the tournament. Those courts are a lot different than ours now, so we will need to be prepared.’ The four-day tournament, hosted by the Falcons, is scheduled to begin Thursday and will run until Sunday. The Falcons will face fifth- seeded Toledo Friday at 10 a.m. in quarterfinal action. BG last met the Rockets at home, posting a tight 4-3 win over their rival. The matches are set to be held at Keefe Courts all four days but will move to the Perrysburg Tennis Center in the case of inclement weather.
