THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. – One day after a rain-shortened victory at the Poulson Tennis Center, the Cal Lutheran women’s tennis team returned to sunny courts to compete for the third time in as many days. The Regals’ fate was not the same as the last two matches as Redlands powered past CLU, 9-0, in the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) opener for both squads.
Ranked No. 24 in the nation, the Bulldogs took an early 3-0 lead after doubles and never looked back.
The freshman-sophomore No. 1 duo of Emily Werman and Sarah Baker put up a fight after finding a rhythm mid-way through the match, but fell 8-4. Both the No. 2 and No. 3 teams dropped 8-2 decisions.
In singles action, Werman went on to battle Natalie Etchegary, falling 6-3, 6-2 in the No. 1 spot. Both Baker and Lauren Toohey lost, 6-1, 6-2, occupying the No. 2 and No. 6 positions, respectively, today.
Redlands earned 6-0, 6-0 wins on the No. 3, 4, and 5 courts in the sweep.
Cal Lutheran (2-2, 1-0 SCIAC) will next be in action on Friday, Feb. 15 when they play host to non-conference Biola at 2:00 p.m.
