UMKC Tennis closes out season with dominant performance

While the Roos will not make the playoffs this season, they were able to put up a commanding performance against Western Illinois in the final match of the season. Kansas City won 7-0, making for a memorable Senior Day.

Only in doubles action did the Roos feel any pressure from Western Illinois. Despite the pushback, UMKC still came out on top in all three matches, winning 7-5, 6-3 and 6-3.

Almost all of the singles matches were lopsided affairs for Kansas City. Only one match went to a tiebreaker, in which Tuana Tinaztepe won 10-1.

Coach Kendall Hale was pleased with the play from the team’s seniors, noting their impressive careers at UMKC. 

“Grace Ball and Rudi Sharma have added a lot of success to their years as Roos and I know they will find success in all they do moving forward in their lives,” coach Hale said.

UMKC finishes the season 5-14.
