CEDAR CITY, Utah - Southern Utah University women's tennis was dealt its second conference sweep of the season on Friday afternoon, falling to the University of Montana 7-0 at home on the Thunderbird Tennis Courts. The loss drops the T-Birds to 4-7 overall and 1-4 in the Big Sky while the Grizzlies improved to 7-5 and 2-0 in conference play.

UM opened the match by taking each doubles match with an 8-3 result at No. 1, 8-6 finish at No. 2 and an 8-4 win at No. 3 doubles.

Southern Utah also was defeated in straight sets in all but one singles match as Jane Marushko proved to be the exception, stretching her match to three.
