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. The freshman from Russia lost the first set 6-4, but came back to square the match with a 6-3 victory in the second at No. 3 singles.
