Box Score

TACOMA, Wash. - The Pacific Lutheran University women's tennis team returned to the courts after a four-month layoff on Saturday afternoon, falling 9-0 in its Northwest Conference opener to 26th-ranked Whitman College inside the Sprinker Recreation Center.

"The team battled  hard today," said Head Coach Lorrie Wood. "Whitman is a tough team and the Lutes came ready to compete. We had some close matches that were fun to watch and plan use what we learned in our match today to be more competitive in our match tomorrow against Linfield."

In doubles, Caroline Dreher and Megan Beyers provided the Lutes (0-2, 0-1 NWC) best performance, falling 8-3 to Whitman's (4-0, 4-0 NWC) Hannah Greenberg and Mary Hill who entered the match as the sixth ranked doubles tandem in the West Region.

Dreher stumbled, 7-5, 6-3, to Hill at No. 1 singles while No. 2 singles player Emily Bower provided a stiff test in the second set in a, 6-1, 6-4, setback to Allie Wallin, the West Region's 25th ranked singles player. Kristi Floyd fell, 6-2, 6-4, at No. 6 while Alina Nussbaum earned an 8-6 exhibition victory over Lorin DeMuth.

The Lutes return to the courts tomorrow morning, facing Linfield College at 10:30 a.m. inside Sprinker.
