In a rescheduled match at Cal State Fullerton, the Loyola Marymount women's tennis team lost, 4-1, on Wednesday.

The Lions' last match ended in victory, as they took a 5-2 win over the Cal Poly Mustangs at home on January 28. When LMU last met both UCLA and Cal State Fullerton, however, they were not able to come out victorious. The 2017 match against UCLA resulted in a 5-2 loss, while the match against Fullerton resulted in a 4-1 defeat.

UCLA and Fullerton are also coming off of wins from this past weekend, as UCLA defeated South Carolina on Sunday and Fullerton conquered San Jose State at the Fullerton Invite.

The Bruins enter the week ranked #13 in the ITA rankings, and feature six players who own a ranking on the singles side, led by Ena Shibahara (#12). Shibahara and Jada Hart are also the fourth-best pair on the doubles side according to the latest rankings.

LMU is also showing well in the latest rankings, with Veronica Miroshnichenko and Eva Marie Voracek carrying singles rankings and a ranking in doubles while playing together. Miroshnichenko is tabbed #22 in singles, while Voracek checks in at #105. The duo is also the #24 pair on the double side.

Cal State Fullerton, which will play Cal State Northridge on Friday before meeting the Lions, is led by 97th-ranked Genevieve Zeidan in singles.

Following this weekend's match ups, the Lions will travel to Long Beach State to battle the Beach at 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, the 21st.
