The Lady Bisons ended their regular season with a close match against Western Kentucky University. Due to the construction of the new tennis courts at Lipscomb, this match was played at Belmont University.

Olivia Ellis and Caitlin Khouri were the sole singles winners for the Lady Bisons.

Raphela Jann & Mariana Rangel held tight to their doubles match, making an exciting comeback, but could not quite clinch the victory.

Britt Kuertz almost pulled out a win and went into a second set tiebreaker but ended up not clinching a close match.

"We all worked hard. It was our last match and everyone played really well," said Kuertz.

The Lady Bisons are gearing up for the post season Atlantic Sun Conference Tournament to be held April 18th in Johnson City, TN at East Tennessee State University.
