Women’s tennis splits Saturday action

Southwestern women opened their spring dual match season in Kerrville, facing Schreiner University in the morning and Sul Ross State University in the afternoon. SU fell to Schreiner 5-4 before rebounding with an easy 9-0 win over the Lobos.

Schreiner swept women's doubles to set up a challenging comeback for the Pirates. SU was up to the challenge as Julie Sets won her #1 singles match 6-2, 6-4. Nicole Wilson won #4 singles 6-1, 6-1 to keep Southwestern on track and Maranda Kahl followed suit with a 6-1, 6-4 win in #6 singles over Knedlick. Kali Rose won her 5 singles match 6-4, 4-6, 6-2, but that is all the singles matches the Pirates would take as they fell 5-4 for the match.

In match two of the day, SU got off to a stronger start, winning two of three doubles. Rose/Wilson blanked Rogers/Griffin in #2 doubles as did Virginia Stover/Maranda Kahl in #3 doubles.

Marieke Visser fell in #1 singles 6-1, 6-2, but Southwestern swept the final five matches to secure the 7-2 win. Moeller edged out Schulz 4-6, 6-4, 10-8 and Ciere Mires won #3 singles 6-4, 6-4.

Southwestern comes home for the first time this spring to face Howard Payne University on Friday at 3 p.m.
