SAN DIEGO – The SDC women's tennis kept it rolling on Thursday.
The No.13 Hawks defeated No. 7 Indiana Wesleyan 6-3 in a non-conference bout. With the win, SDC improves to 6-2 on the year with their only losses coming against NCAA Div. I teams. The Wildcats fall to 17-6.
"After a very tough and long road trip playing in Washington and Idaho, it prepared the women to compete against a tough top-10 team," head coach Priscilla Jensen said. "The women fought with their heart and pulled it off and couldn't be more proud of them."
Augustine, Brooke Ferslov Jensen, Emelianova and Geschke all won their singles matches, two of which went into the third set. Borsos lost her singles match in three sets, 3-6, 6-3, 6-1.
SDC hits the road this weekend and returns to GSAC play against Arizona Christian on Saturday.
