Western Michigan 6, UB 1
Bowling Green 5, UB 2
The University at Buffalo women’s tennis team kicked off the Mid-American Conference portion of its schedule Friday afternoon — just not the way the Bulls had hoped.
UB lost to Western Michigan 6-1 at the West Hills Athletic Club in Kalamazoo, Mich.
The Bulls got a singles victory from Andrea Novaceanu and a doubles triumph from Novaceanu and Tina Jacob.
The losing streak would continue Saturday for the Bulls.
After winning a pair of doubles matches and earning the doubles point, the Bulls managed just one singles win in losing 6-2 at Bowling Green in a Mid-American Conference matchup on Saturday.
Novaceanu won the Bulls (8-4, 0-2 MAC) only singles match. The victory extended Novaceanu’s school-record single season win total to 21 and was her eighth straight.
Manhattan 5, UB 2
The University at Buffalo men’s tennis squad dropped a non-conference match to Manhattan College on Saturday night at the Village Glen Tennis Center.
UB (8-5 overall) got singles victories from Mike Rockman and East Amherst native Fred Duncan, but dropped all three doubles matches and the remaining singles contests.
The match was coach Russ Crispell’s final home appearance, as he’ll retire from coaching at the end of the season.
UB next travels to Ball State at 1 p.m. Saturday.
Coastal Carolina 8, UB 0
The University at Buffalo softball team finished the East Carolina State Farm Pirate Classic on a negative note.
The Bulls lost 8-0 to Coastal Carolina on Sunday, as they dropped all four games in the tournament. Junior Sophie Barstad was the losing pitcher for UB. Christine Doyle threw a one-hitter for Coastal Carolina.
The Bulls next travel to Pittsburgh for a doubleheader with the Panthers, which begins at 4 p.m. Wednesday.
