HU’s five-game win streak snapped against IWU

Home / News

UPLAND, Ind. - The Huntington women’s tennis team fell victim to Indiana Wesleyan University 8-1 Tuesday afternoon at Klopfenstein Courts. The Wildcats remain undefeated in league play at 6-0 while HU drops to 4-2 in conference action, 6-2 overall. The loss snaps HU’s five-game win streak.

IWU’s dominance isn’t limited to just this fall. Since 2006, the Wildcats have lost just one conference regular season match with that loss coming to Marian in 2014.

The Foresters’ win came at the No. 6 spot in singles play where Lisa Colling knocked off Sabrina Porter 6-2, 6-3. HU’s Constanze Golz and Meg Dolde had a strong showing at No. 1 doubles where they conceded to this year’s ITA Regional doubles champions Alex Mella and Lizzie Bauss 8-6.

Dolde, at #2 singles, and Lanae Singleton, at #3 singles, were a handful for their Wesleyan counterparts as they extended their respective matches to three sets.

HU travels to Adrian College tomorrow for a rescheduled nonconference match from last week.
