Monmouth University 6 Rider University 1
WEST LONG BRANCH--The Rider University women's tennis team lost a non-conference match at Monmouth University on Monday afternoon.
For Rider (0-3), senior Marly Roche (Sussex/High Point Regional) battled back from one set down and won at first singles, taking the third set in a 10-4 tiebreaker.
"It was a tough match," said head coach Ed Torres. "We were missing a player due to illness so the majority of the team was playing up one or two spots in both singles and doubles."
The Rider men's tennis team travels to Rutgers Camden on Wednesday for a 3pm match. Both the men's and women's tennis teams travel to Loudonville, New York Saturday for a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference match at Siena.
