TYLER, Texas - Hardin-Simmons' women's tennis team fell 5-1 to Mississippi College in an American Southwest Confernece match that was stopped after the outcome was decided because of available indoor courts on Sunday in Tyler.

HSU's Jenna Smith won 6-4, 6-1 at No. 3 singles, but MC finished the match with a three-set win at No. 1 and a close two-setter at No. 2.
The Cowgirls are now 3-8 on the year and 3-3 in conference action. MC improved to 6-4 overall and 3-1 in league play. HSU will hit the road again next weekend for matches at Texas Lutheran, Schreiner and Trinity.
