HUNTINGTON, Ind. – The Forester women’s tennis team snapped a two-game losing skid with a hard-fought 5-4 win over Lawrence Tech Saturday afternoon at Klopfenstein Courts. With this win, HU improves to 10-5 on the year.

Constanze Golz, Meg Dolde and Allison Smith were all double winners for the Foresters. Golz and Dolde paired up at #1 doubles to cruise past Carolyn McCullen and Sabrina Mateos 8-3. They would go on to win in straight sets at No. 1 and No. 2 singles respectively to each log another win.

“I am very proud of the effort the team displayed today,” said Coach Roger Ferguson. “Our #1 singles player, Constanze Golz, was the only one playing in her normal spot in the line-up. Everyone stepped up and played big today to help with the win."
