SALT LAKE CITY, Utah - The No. 32 TCU women's tennis team won their sixth consecutive match in a 5-2 defeat of Utah on Friday at the Eccles Tennis Center. The win improved the Horned Frogs to 13-7 overall and 4-0 in the Mountain West Conference, while dropping the Utes to 13-7 overall and 3-2 in conference play.
"I think when we won the doubles tiebreaker to clinch the doubles point it really helped build momentum going into singles play," said TCU head coach Jefferson Hammond. "I was impressed with our fight and our team camaraderie. We really helped each other today playing at an away match."
After No. 58 Sydorska fell at the No. 1 singles position, No. 43 Cetnik put the Frogs back up 2-1 as the senior defeated Walsh 6-2, 6-3. The win was Cetnik's sixth straight victory.
