CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- The Xavier women's tennis team's season came to an end Friday as the No. 5 seeded Musketeers fell 4-0 to the No. 4 seeded Temple Owls. Xavier finished the 2012 campaign with a 16-6 overall record.
"Although today's loss is disappointing it certainly does not take away from our great season and I'm really proud of our girls," said Xavier head tennis coach Eric Toth. "Temple was simply better today and will really make a run at the title. This group has really made some positive strides and I'm confident we'll be even better next season and be in position to make a better showing at next year's tournament."
In singles play, Jordan Batey topped Xavier sophomore Andrea Wolf 6-3, 6-2 at No. 3, Ama Osei defeated sophomore Allyson Westling, and Paola Caldedron edged Alkire 6-3, 6-4 at No. 4 to seal the match.
