TULSA, Okla. — After winning five-straight matches, the 52nd-ranked Kansas State tennis team was sent to its second straight loss on Sunday.

The Wildcats ended the weekend road trip with a 4-1 loss to No. 23 Tulsa at the Case Tennis Center.

K-State (5-3) got a win in doubles action from its No. 2 tandem of freshmen Palma Juhasz and Iva Bago — an 8-3 win over Maria Sant’Anna and Dobby Leenabanchong.

The tandem of Bago and Juhasz improved to 4-2 together this season and is 3-1 in the No. 2 position in the lineup.

In singles, Juhasz tied the match at one with a win at No. 4 singles. The freshman from Debrecen, Hungary captured K-State’s only singles win with 6-2, 6-4 victory over Sant’Anna. Juhasz has won four of her last five singles matches and is 10-7 in her debut season in Manhattan.

Tulsa won its eighth straight match by adding wins at Nos. 3,6 and 2 singles to its doubles point.

K-State returns to the road next this weekend when the Wildcats travel to New York to face No. 35 Columbia on Friday at 9 a.m. and No. 32 Memphis on Saturday at 9 a.m.
