The Daily Hampshire Gazette led off its Weekend College Round-Up section with a recap of the UMass women's tennis team's hard-luck loss in the Atlantic 10 Championship match on Sunday afternoon. Down 3-0, it looked as if the Minutewomen were in the midst of a terrific come-back rally holding leads in the four remaining singles matches. An injury to senior Chanel Glasper, however, ended her match pre-maturely to give the fourth, and championship-winning, point to VCU.
