BOURBONNAIS, Ill. – Clear skies and a slight breeze made for the perfect afternoon for tennis. The Olivet Nazarene University women's team took full advantage, picking up a Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference win over the University of St. Francis (Ill.). The Tigers were more than they Fighting Saints could handle, falling 9-0.
The Tigers dominated doubles, allowing the Fighting Saints to pick up just three total games in the three matches. Olivet didn't let up in singles action as USF only won eight games total.
Priscila Nuñez downed Eva Lopez in the top spot 6-1, 6-1, while Victoria Monakhova (JR/Moscow, Russia) added a win at No. 2 6-2, 6-0 over Mel Schberger. Dana Huck (FR/Huntertown, Ind.) blanked Brit Kupirc 6-0, 6-0 in the third spot. Faith Huckabee (SR/Hazel Crest, Ill.) added a win at No. 4, downing Erika Edrada 6-0, 6-1, while Mikaela Coose (JR/Twin Lakes, Wis.) flipped that score to defeat Katie Monahon at No. 5. Anna Kuechenberg (JR/Crystal Lake, Ill.) beat Haley McLain in matching 6-1 sets at No. 6.
Olivet was scheduled to face Roosevelt University (Ill.) in CCAC action on Thursday, April 10, but the Tigers were notified earlier in the week that the Lakers would forfeit the match. Now, the Tigers will travel to Saint Ambrose University (Iowa) on Saturday, April 22 to face the Fighting Bees in the final match of the regular season. The CCAC Tournament is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, April 25.
