With only one win in doubles play, the Foresters needed to turn it on in singles, but came up one match short as Franklin College nipped HU 5-4. Freshman sensation, Stephanie Strong, continued her winning ways as she easily defeated Leslie McAleese 6-2, 6-1. She then teamed with Kendra Ganz to win at 6-2, 6-4 #1 doubles. Jessica Deter and Dawn Lauer were also singles winners with both playing their best tennis of the season. Deter outlasted Emily Ruch 7-6, 1-6, 10-8 win at #3 and Lauer picked up the 6-3, 4-6, 10-7 over Laura Overstock at #5.
“Jess and Dawn really came through today,” said Turner. “They played with a great deal of confidence and poise.”
The Foresters fall to 4-7 on the season with the loss.
