The Concordia womenās tennis team clobbered the visiting MSU squad 8-1 Tuesday night in Olson Forum. The men, however, did not fare so well. In their match against Gustavus last Saturday, they lost 9-0.

In the womenās number one singles match, junior Molly Hansen dropped her first set 2-6. She came back to even the match in the second set by winning a tie breaker 10-8. Hansen then prevailed in the third with a 6-4 victory.

Junior Sarah Shelley, at number three singles, had an easy time with her opponent, ringing up a 6-3, 6-2 decision over Carrie Peterson of MSU.

Hansen and Shelley also combined to further help the team with a 8-4 victory in number one doubles action. Junior Betsy Gehant was also victorious on the night as she won 7-5, 6-4 in her singles match. Her doubles partner, fellow junior Tricia Gau, came back from one set down to win 6-2 and 6-4 in the last two sets to come away with the win.

Gehant and Gau overwhelmed their opponent in doubles as well, winning 8-2 later that night.

Junior Heather Sandberg played well in her match Tuesday. She quickly ousted her opponent 6-1, 6-3. Sophomore Stacey Bauck also won her match 6-3, 6-2.

First-year student Nicole Koskey and sophomore Sarah Holland accounted for the other Cobber win. They whipped their Dragon opponent, 8-3.

Menās Tennis

The menās team faltered against Gustavus Saturday, falling 9-0.

The Gusties simply overpowered the Cobbers as Concordia could muster just one set against Gustavus.

Tuchscherer and Nielsonās doubles record fell to 5-2 on the year.

Sophomore Eric Holmstrom, playing at number one singles, lost to Gustavusā Paul Jeffries 6-1, 6-1. Holmstrom drops to 0-3 on the year.

First-year student Ross Gustafson dropped to 3-4 overall after his 6-3, 6-4 loss to Gustavusā Tommy Fleming. He was not alone as all the Cobbers had trouble with their opponents.

Concordiaās team record now stands at 2-5 on the season.
