Women’s tennis team pursues strong finish
The Duhawks have had many successes in their fall tennis season. The team is currently 6-4, 2-2 in conference. All of these six victories are important, but some are more notable than others. For instance, Loras defeated new conference opponent Nebraska Wesleyan by a 7-2 margin.
Having never faced this team before, the Duhawks were not sure what to expect in this new competitor. The team dominated to take their first conference win of the season.
Also notable is the fact that Loras is dominating on the road. Having only played two home matches thus far, the Duhawks have competed in eight away games. Their record is 5-3 when away from Loras and 1-1 when competing at Wahlert High School.
Most recently, Loras defeated St. Ambrose in a 5-4 match. Top performances included senior Jessica Dickhut, junior Ayla Graziano and sophomore Emma Cooke defeating their singles opponents. Cooke and Graziano also topped their doubles competition.
The Duhawks will travel to face Simpson and Central on the road before playing their final regular season match against Wartburg at home on Wednesday, Oct. 5. First serve is set for 4 p.m. at Wahlert High School.
