KINGSTON, R.I. – The Monmouth University women’s tennis team dropped a pair of non-conference matches to the University of Rhode Island and Bryant, both by the score of 7-0, last weekend at the URI Tennis Complex.

In the neutral site tilt against the Bulldogs, the Blue and White nearly earned points and No. 3 and No. 4 singles, but Jenna LaBarre held off freshman Kendal Kauffman (Toms River, N.J./Toms River North) 6-4, 6-3 and Jovana Hadzi-Tanovic edged rookie Chioma Gabriel 7-5 in the opening set before earning a 6-0 second-set victory.

The Hawks return to action this Wednesday, October 16th as it welcomes Wagner to the MU Tennis Courts at 2:30 p.m. in a rescheduled match from last week.
