TULSA, Okla. - The Baylor women's tennis duo of Kiah Generette and Blair Shankle were knocked out of the NCAA Doubles Championship with a second round loss to UCLA’s Catherine Harrison and Kyle McPhillips Friday at the Michael D. Case Tennis Center.

In that tiebreaker, the Bears fell behind 4-1 and went on to lose it 7-2 to drop the match.

TOP QUOTE
Credit to the Bruins. They played very well beginning to end. Kiah and Blair started off slow, but gave themselves an opportunity to win the second set. I'm proud of their effort and willingness to find a way to win. They just fell short of All-American honors, but it wasn't from a lack of effort. They have given it their best this entire season.” - head coach Joey Scrivano on the match

WHAT’S NEXT
The loss concludes the 2015-16 season.
