BEMIDJI -- The Bemidji State tennis team lost a pair of home matches at the Gillett Wellness Center over the weekend.

BSU suffered its first home loss since Feb. 21, 2016, on Saturday afternoon in a 4-1 defeat to Sioux Falls in a Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference match.

The Cougars earned the doubles point to take a 1-0 lead, posting wins at the No. 1 and No. 3 doubles positions. USF picked up wins at Nos. 1, 2 and 5 singles to claim the win with their fourth point, leaving the No. 4 and No. 6 singles matches unnecessary to finish.

The Vikings secured the doubles point with two wins. AU took three of the four singles matches, with an unfinished match in the No. 1 spot.
