LUTES FALL TO NWC POWERS: Pacific Lutheran dropped a pair of conference matches last weekend as visiting Whitman and Whitworth took wins from the Lutes. On Friday, Pacific Lutheran picked up a win in both doubles and singles play but could manage no more as the visiting Whitman Missionaries took a 7-2 win at the UPS Tennis Pavilion. Ali Burnside and Deanna Ellmer battled Whitman's Charlotte Scott and Dena Wessel in the third doubles match until the Lutes duo finally prevailed 9-8 (12-10). In singles play, PLU's Cora Wigen and Whitman's Hadley DeBree split sets, 6-1, 4-6, before Wigen won the super-tiebreaker, 10-6. One day later, the Pirates ranked No. 6 in the West Region of Division III women's tennis, lost only four games in doubles and just nine in the six singles matches on the way to a 9-0 triumph.
