The 8th seeded Lady Bisons played in the Atlantic Sun Conference tennis tournament on April 18th in Johnson City, Tenn. They lost to #1 seeded Jacksonville 5-0.
It has been a tough year for the Lady Bisons, under the direction of new Assistant Head Coach Kristin Lusk.
The Lady Bisons have not won any matches this season, but have had some very close calls. Though the team is young, the talent will continue to grow in future.
