Women’s Tennis Takes Down Tommies 5-4 Posted on April 22nd, 2018 by


ST. PETER, Minn. – The No. 35-ranked Gustavus women’s tennis remained unbeaten during Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference play, handing the University of St. Thomas its first MIAC loss with a 5-4 win Sunday afternoon at Swanson Tennis Center.

The Gusties, now 11-7 overall and 6-0 during conference action, went down 2-1 after losing in No. 2 and No. 3 doubles, but came back to take four of six singles wins.

“Today’s match was so much fun,” said Head Coach Jon Carlson. “The women really embraced the toughness of the battle between the teams. It’s pretty special to have a team that loves when they know it’s going to be a difficult match. They focused on all-out effort and never letting anything in their matches get in the way of fighting hard.”
