BATON ROUGE, La. — Senior Caroline Dedering and freshman Isabelle Jonsson and each won their singles matches, but it was not enough, as Southeastern Louisiana downed UTSA by a score of 5-2 in the Southland Conference opener for both teams on Sunday. The two teams were forced to move to a neutral site after inclement weather rolled through the Hammond area on Saturday.

UTSA (3-4, 0-1 SLC) dropped all three doubles matches and the Lady Lions (4-2, 1-0 SLC) collected wins at first, third, fourth and sixth singles to claim the win.

Jonsson defeated Raissa Dias in straight sets (6-0, 6-0) at the No. 2 singles position. Meanwhile, Dedering earned the Roadrunners' second point after getting past Nina Schmied, 6-2, 7-5, at the No. 5 spot.

Junior Stefanie Peana was outlasted in three sets at the top spot by Audrey Chelini. Peana won the opening set, 6-4, but she dropped the next two, 6-0, 7-6 (10-8).

UTSA will return to the Alamo City for a four-match home stand that begins on Friday, March 11, against Abilene Christian.
