The South Dakota State women's tennis team dropped a close decision at The Summit League tennis cluster to IUPUI 4-3 on Friday...
In an important match-up with cluster host IUPUI, the Jacks dropped the always important doubles point and only mustered a split in the six singles matches.
In doubles, Jenny Blackburune and Brooke Henry teamed up for an 8-6 win at No. 1 doubles. The duo pushed its record over .500 with the win.
With a one point advantage, the Jaguars needed only a split in singles to earn the team victory, and that is exactly what happened.
Nasenbeny and Blackburne won in straight sets at No. 1 and No. 2. McDougall, the other Jackrabbit win, came in straight sets at No. 4, but needed a second-set tiebreaker to determine the outcome.
IUPUI survived two full third sets at No. 3 and No. 6 to take the meet 4-3.

SDSU drops to 8-11 overall and 2-5 in league play.
