HUNTINGTON, W.Va. - Just a day away from completing its regular season in Richmond, Va. vs. VCU on Tuesday at 11 a.m., the Marshall women's tennis team will not take on the Rams due to anticipated poor weather. The dual match was originally scheduled to be played March 30, but was postponed due to inclement weather conditions.

Playing two contests in as many days, the Thundering Herd split the dual matches with a 5-2 win at Eastern Kentucky on Thursday and a 4-3 loss at No. 55 Louisville on Friday. The loss to the Cardinals snapped a two-match win streak for Marshall.

The Herd has won the doubles point in each of its last five dual matches. While the opening point has helped Marshall get ahead, it hasn't been the deciding factor with a 3-2 mark in those five contests.

Having played just one Conference USA dual match this spring, the Herd will look to more conference foes in the C-USA Tournament which will be hosted by Old Dominion in Norfolk, Va. Marshall will open play on April 17 with the time and opponent to be determined.
