On day two, the Cats won three events and had 19 top-10 finishes.

🔼 First Win. The women’s tennis team won its first SEC match against Mississippi State. The Cats won 4-2, going 3 for 3 in doubles and 3-2 in singles.

🔼 Split Weekend. The stunt team went 1-1 this weekend as they beat Central Arkansas 21-1 and fell to California Baptist 23-5. The team is now 11-5 overall.
