NASHVILLE --- The men's and women's tennis team completed its weekend sweep of the Mississippi Valley State Devils Saturday afternoon in Memphis. 

The men's team improves to 2-1 on the year, leaving the Devils scoreless through both doubles and singles play. Juan Carlos Rojas Antezana helped mid-year transfer Alberto Gonzalez win his first match in blue and white, with a doubles victory at No. 2, 6-1. Five Tigers defeated their singles opponent, uncontested, 8-0, the final match left unfinished as Tennessee State clinched the match.

The women's team is undefeated (2-0), kicking off the season with a bang after two wins over MVSU this weekend. Sophomore Lydia Jones defeated Ambra Stanley and newcomer Tatyana Johnson defeated Christy Cotton, serving their way into their first singles victories in a dual match as a Tiger.
