The Bowling Green State University tennis team won the final three singles matches on the courts, posting a 4-3, come-from-behind win over the University of Akron Friday afternoon (April 5). The Mid-American Conference match was held at LaTuchie Tennis Center in Stow, Ohio.
With the win, the Falcons improve to 14-2 overall and 3-1 in MAC action. The Zips, the two-time defending league tournament champions, drop to 14-8 and 2-2, respectively.
Freshman Katie Brozovich capped the comeback for the Brown and Orange, winning a 6-0 third set at the fourth singles flight. After winning the doubles point, the Falcons fell behind by a 3-1 score as the Zips won the first three singles matches to finish. But, with three matches left on the courts, BG competitors proceeded to win all three.
BGSU captured the doubles point for the 15th consecutive match. And, for the fourth time in as many MAC duals, head coach Penny Dean's four seniors combined for the two wins that gave her Falcons the initial point of the match.
The Zips' tandem of Angelina Jogasuria and Prang Pantusart, ranked 65th in the nation in the most recent ITA doubles rankings, gave the home team a win at the top flight. That UA duo downed BG juniors Nikki Chiricosta and Emily Reuland.
