Notre Dame Bests Texas Tech Lady Raider Tennis 4-3
A lengthy women’s tennis match failed to yield a win for Texas Tech.
On Monday, 20th ranked Notre Dame edged No. 21 ranked Texas Tech 4 to 3 after a rain delay that stretched the match out to last more than 8 and a half hours.
“This was a great collegiate match,” said Lady Raider head coach Todd Petty. “I was so impressed with the resilience of our group after losing a tough doubles point. Hats off to Notre Dame, they were the better team today.”
Lady Raiders Samantha Adams and Kenna Kilgo, ranked No. 47 nationally, knocked off the nation’s No. 2 doubles team of Kristy Frilling and Shannon Mathews in what Tech called their upset of the day.
At the end, the match was tied at 3-3, and came down to No. 3 singles for the fourth point. Texas Tech’s Rashmi Teltumbde won the first set, but lost to Notre Dame’s Jennifer Kellner in the second and third sets.
Lady Raider tennis will play Kansas State on March 23rd at 1 p.m. in Manhattan, Kansas.
