Despite an outstanding performance by Pat Jones, who put up 20 total points, the Bearcats fell to the Big Red with a final score of 52-58.

After several successful seasons, the Saint Vincent women’s tennis team begins to prepare for 2014. This season, the Bearcats will be taking the court with new coach, Jym Walters.
