CHICAGO - San José State's women's tennis, playing its second match in as many days, fell to No. 47 DePaul, 6-1, Sunday afternoon at Lakeshore Sport & Fitness.
The loss drops the Spartans to 3-4 overall on the spring, with all four losses coming on the road against ranked opponents. For the Blue Demons, the win brings them to 5-2 on the year and marks their fifth consecutive victory since starting the spring 0-2.
The doubles tandem of Sybille Gauvain and Malin Cubukcu picked up a win at the No. 2 spot in the lineup, downing DePaul's Ana Vladutu and Zaina Sufi. The victory would not be enough, however, as the Spartans conceded the doubles point and the early lead.
