FORT WAYNE, Ind. – The HU women’s tennis team logged their fifth loss of the year, a 7-2 decision, Saturday morning against #16 Davenport University (14-5) at Wildwood Racquet Club. Celine Rongos highlighted the Foresters’ play with a 6-0, 6-3 win over Steph Ritson at No. 3 singles.

“All in all, I feel the team played as good as could be expected considering their last competitive match was back in early February,” said Coach Ferguson. “Celine Rongos, playing in her first match since recovering from injury, showed why she is such a tough competitor by winning her singles match in straight sets against a very talented Davenport player.

“Davenport is a highly ranked team and we showed that, as a team, we are heading in the right direction.”

The Foresters (10-5) return to action on Saturday to host Hillsdale College at 11:00 a.m.
