San Diego, Calif. -- Seeded No. 8 at the West Coast Conference Championships at the Barnes Tennis Center in San Diego, the LMU women's tennis team could not pull off the upset of No. 5 San Diego on Wednesday afternoon. The 4-1 setback eliminated the Lions from the tournament and ends the team's season at 8-15 overall and 2-7 in conference.

The Toreros won the first two doubles matches to finish, giving San Diego a one point lead heading into singles play. In the singles round, the Lion's Ellie Grossman earned a convincing 6-1, 6-1 win on Court 6 but San Diego won on three courts to take the match 4-1. On Court 3, Miya Jin had just won the second set and was heading to the third when it went unfinished. And on Court 5, Reka Rohonyi was up 6-4, 4-3 when her match was stopped.

The match was the final collegiate contest for seniors Miya Jin and Reka Rohonyi, who were great contributors for both singles and doubles play over their four-year careers at LMU.
