Lewis & Clark Rallies Past Lutes for Tennis Win

Pacific Lutheran won all three doubles points, but Lewis & Clark won five of the six singles matches to take a 5-4 Northwest Conference women's tennis win on Saturday at Sprinker Tennis Center.

The Lutes, in search of their first conference win in two seasons, seemed on the verge of accomplishing that task after doubles play. Leah Newell and Tina Aarsvold beat Jill Coleman and Olivia Sweetman, 8-4, at No. 1, Cora Wigen and Valery Jorgensen topped Lisa Ospeyan and Gillian Lowe, 9-7, at No. 2, and Allison McClure and Katherine Patton defeated Makena McCluskey and Theresa Grigsby, 8-4, at No. 3.

The Pioneers rallied, winning four of their five singles points with straight-set victories. Osepyan defeated Wigen 6-4, 6-1, Coleman topped Newell, 6-0, 6-3, and Lowe beat Aarsvold 6-2, 7-5, in the one through three spots. Elisa Alway topped Destiny Green, 6-4, 6-0, at No. 6.

In the one singles match that went to three sets, Sweetman beat McClure, 6-3, 5-7, 6-2.

PLU's lone singles win came from Catherine Miolla, who moved up one spot to No. 5 and beat Justine Minette, 6-1, 6-3. Patton, who usually plays No. 5 for the Lutes, was limited to doubles play by an injury.

The Lutes, 1-15 overall and 0-10 in conference, close out their season next weekend with matches at Pacific and Willamette.
