The Lady Bisons dropped their second Atlantic Sun Conference match against the University of South Carolina-Upstate 7-0.

Senior Raphaela Jann and sophomore Claire Landry continued their strong doubles play, but lost 8-5 to Carolina Bello and Cinthya Lazaro.

“We keep improving in doubles and Jann and Landry had a great match today,” said Lady Bisons coach Kristin Lusk. “They are playing really tough."

It was the 13th straight A-Sun match win for USC Upstate.

“We've played ETSU and USC Upstate this weekend, which are two of the best teams in the conference," said Lusk. “It was a tough weekend for us, but we've got to bounce back and get ready to play Wofford Sunday morning."

The Lady Bisons will continue to seek a road trip win Sunday, March 8 in a non-conference match against Wofford in Spartanburg, S.C.

The Lady Bisons, 4-4, are back home March 11 against IPFW at 4 p.m. The location is yet to be announced.
