In their first home match of the season, the Bulldogs fell, 7-0, to the DePaul Blue Devils on Sunday.
Sophomore Gabrielle Rubenstein fell behind at No. 3 singles, losing the first set 6-0. After the tough start, Rubenstein responded, but fell just short, falling to senior Gia McKnight in a second-set tiebreaker.
Rubenstein wasn't the only Bulldog to lose a narrow match.

On Saturday, Butler travelled to Bloomington, Ind. where the Bulldogs lost, 7-0, to host Indiana.
