The recently hot Tennessee tennis team, had a rough weekend as they lost two times.

After losing a 6-1 verdict to Mississippi State on Friday, Tennessee's tennis team came up short against fifth-ranked Ole Miss on Sunday at the Goodfriend Indoor Tennis Center. This time the score was 4-3.

UT's Simon Rea upset No. 15 ranked Alex Hartman 7-5, 7-5 in No. 1 singles and Mark Dietrich upset No. 21 Catalin Gard 7-6, 3-6, 6-3 at No. 2. Those were UT's only singles wins, however. The Vols did claim two of the doubles matches to take the doubles point.

Tennessee, now 9-8 overall and 2-6 in SEC play, visits No. 2 ranked Florida Friday in Gainesville.
