PORTLAND, Ore. - The Pacific Lutheran University women's tennis squad came up just short in its final match of the season, falling 5-4 to non-conference foe College of Idaho on Saturday at the Sprinker Recreation Center.

Caroline Dreher and Megan Beyers secured the Lutes' (2-15) lone victory in doubles action, topping the Coyotes' (5-6) No. 1 tandem of Allie Boyd and Megan Huffman by an 8-1 scoreline.

In singles, Dreher continued to roll, netting a, 6-0, 6-1, win over Boyd at No. 1 for her ninth win of the season. The junior has been red-hot in the final month of the season, winning five of her last six matches at No. 1 singles.

Emily Beemsterboer tallied a, 6-1, 6-7 (4-7), 1-0 (10-3), win at Mo. 4 singles to cap off her collegiate career while Kylie Rademacher earned her seventh win of the year, securing a, 7-6 (7-4), 4-6, 1-0 (12-10), at No. 6. Emily Bower battled before falling, 7-5, 6-1, at No. 2 singles while Megan Beyers fell victim to Alex Sorte at No. 3, falling 6-2, 7-6 (8-6).

"We pulled out great wins at No. 1 doubles, and No. 1., No. 4, and No. 6 singles. It was a close match but ultimately we came up short today," said Head Coach Lorrie Wood. "I'd like to thank this year's seniors for all they've done for this program over the past four years."
