Big Rapids, Mich. - The Ferris State University women's tennis squad bounced back in a big way on day two of the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) Tournament as FSU beat Ashland on Saturday (Oct. 27) by a 4-2 score at the Greater Midland Tennis Center.
The fifth-seeded Bulldogs, who had fell to fourth-seeded Wayne State on Friday night in round one, came back to beat the eighth-seeded Eagles.
Ashland took the early lead against Ferris State by winning two of the three doubles flights to pick up the first point of the match. FSU did get a win from Nicole Meylor and Sam Stephenson by a 6-1 score at two doubles.
In singles action, though, FSU captured four of the five completed flights to pull out the win.
With the win, the Bulldogs improved to 5-6 overall this campaign.
Ferris State will face sixth-seeded Lake Superior State for fifth place in the final day of conference tournament action on Sunday (Oct. 28) starting at 8:15 a.m. (ET) in Midland.
