KU tennis falls to WSU


Wichita State handed Kansas University’s women’s tennis team its first dual loss of the season, 5-2, on Friday at the Jayhawk Tennis Center.

Smith Hinton at No. 2 and Nina Khmelnitckaia at No. 4 were KU’s only singles winners. WSU won the doubles points, but KU’s Hinton and Anastasiya Rychagova won the No. 3 doubles match.

“The combination of playing a really good team, having three weeks off and being put in a lot of tough situations didn’t help us,” KU coach Todd Chapman said. “In the end, we know we need to do some learning in how to be a little more composed and continuing to focus.”

The Shockers improved to 11-3, while KU fell to 6-1. The Jayhawks will host New Mexico at noon Sunday.
