BATON ROUGE, LA – Day one of the first SWAC Tennis Round Up of the 2018 season played across four sites in the greater Baton Rouge area saw a mostly rain-soaked event with a few matches resuming and completing play after nearly a nine-hour delay.

Downpours began shortly after the start time of 9 a.m. and continued in an on-and-off pattern into the late afternoon hours at Southern University’s Tennis Courts, Independence Park Tennis Center, Forest Park Tennis Center and Highland Park Tennis Courts.

Play at both Southern University and Highland Park was not completed and will resume at 8 a.m. on Saturday where the schedule left off.

Matches at both Independence Park and Forest Park completed play through the originally scheduled 9 a.m. matches with Forest Park completing the originally scheduled 2 p.m. matches as well.

In the women’s circuit, Grambling State picked up victories at the No. 2, 4, 5 and 6 singles positions from Keren Muswere, Idah Longwe, Danna Galeano and Tanya Magunje to secure the 4-0 win against Arkansas-Pine Bluff at Forest Park Tennis Center.

Led by No. 1 singles player Tyler Smith, the Jackson State women swept Mississippi Valley State 4-0 at Independence Park Tennis Center while Alabama A&M was able to defeat Arkansas-Pine Bluff 4-0 at Forest Park.

On the men’s side, Jackson State beat Mississippi Valley State 4-0 while Alabama A&M outlasted Arkansas-Pine Bluff 4-2.

Play will resume on Saturday at 8 a.m. where the schedule left off from Friday’s action.
