Singles winners for the women were Mary Beth Muncher and Casey Hall (default).

The men's team earned the doubles point with #1 doubles Mike Sherman & Andrew Harris, and #3 doubles Jeff West and Andy Mizell winning their matches. Singles winners for the team were Andrew Harris, Mike Sherman, David Carrillo, Jeff West, and Daniel Carrillo.

Lipscomb tennis player Colten Jones said, "Despite the fact that I lost my match, I am glad that we were able to win as a team. It is nice to be 1-0 going into a tough match against UT Martin because it gives you a sense of momentum and confidence."

The Bisons will take on UT Martin on February 4 at the Whitworth Racquet Club.
