The Gustavus women’s tennis team opened its spring season with three wins at the Swanson Tennis Center on Saturday. The Gusties opened the day with a 6-3 win over Augustana (SD), followed by a 7-2 win over the University of Nebraska-Omaha, and finished with a 5-4 win over the University of North Dakota. Erica Dobson led Gustavus with three singles wins at the #3 and #4 positions.

Coach Jon Carlson stated “It feels good to get the season underway.” He added, “These three matches were a good, early test for us. We are still trying to put our line-up together and I had a good chance to take a look at a lot of different players today.”

The Gusties next competition will be Feb. 27 when they host the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) Division III Indoor Championships. Eight of the top Division III women’s programs in the nation will come to St. Peter to compete for the ITA Indoor National Title.
