WAUKESHA, Wis. – One day before their Town Club tri-match that would have served as their season opener, MSOE women's tennis hit the hardtop to take on Carroll in their first road match of 2019. While a lot of positives came out of the effort the Raiders put forth, it wasn't enough to get by the Pioneers on Friday morning.

The Lady Raiders will be back in action tomorrow when they take place in the Town Club Tournament which starts first thing in the morning at 9:00 am.
