BOUBONNAIS, Ill. – It was a tough weekend for the No. 17 Olivet Nazarene University women's tennis team. Not only did Mother Nature dump snow across the region, forcing the six-team ONU Spring Invite inside, but all three teams the Tigers would face were ranked in the top-15 of the latest NAIA Coaches' Poll.
Olivet Nazarene 1 No. 15 Northwestern Ohio 5
The No. 3 doubles duo of Anna Kuechenberg (JR/Crystal Lake, Ill.) and Morgan Winnie (JR/Northbrook, Ill.) picked up a huge 8-6 win to send the match into singles down just 2-1. But the Racers were too much for the Tigers, picking up wins at Nos. 1-3 to take the match.
