The Bisons kicked off the 07-08 tennis season in Chattanooga, TN where they fell to UT-Chattanooga. The Bisons had a good number of close singles matches that resulted in losses, however the younger members of the team are learning what it takes to win.
"There were many close singles matches which didn't go our way. However, our younger guys learned about what it is going to take to win in college," Coach Andrew Harris said.
"This will give us an opportunity this upcoming week to go back and work on some different things in order to turn those close matches into victories."
