Concordia couldn't recover from their three doubles losses and ended up dropping their final regular season match of the MIAC to St. Kate's 9-0. It was the Cobbers second consecutive loss and places them in seventh place entering this weekend's conference tournament at Gustavus.

The biggest surprise of the match for Concordia (4-6 MIAC, 4-6) was the loss of the number one doubles team of Erica Tollefson (Jr., Madison, Minn./Lac Qui Parle HS) and Beth Meier (Fr., Crookston, Minn./Crookston HS). The tandem was undefeated coming into the match and had run off a streak of seven straight wins. The team could never get on top of the Wildcats twosome of Cristin Tiegs and Amy Willhite and lost 8-6. That match proved to be the closest contest in the affair as all the Cobber singles were swept in straight sets. 

Emily Waldahl (Fr., Aldrich, Minn./Staples-Motley HS) battled in the number five singles spot but ultimately fell to Nikki Richter 6-3, 6-3.

Concordia finishes the year 4-6 in the MIAC and will likely play Carleton or St. Kate's in the first round of the MIAC tournament which will be held at Gustavus on April 25-26.

Concordia scored a second doubles win on Sunday from the tandem of Miriam Wilhelm (Sr., Princeton, Minn./Princeton HS) and Annie Styba (Fr., Shoreview, Minn./Mounds View HS). Paired for the first time this season, the team gave Concordia a tough number two doubles team.

Beth Meier (Fr., Crookston, Minn.) serves in the decisive tie-breaker in her match clinching victory.

Concordia won four of the six singles matches to rally and beat Bethel 5-4. 

The match came down to the final singles match where the Cobbers' Beth Meier (Fr., Crooks ton, Minn.) came back from a 6-1 deficit in the tie-breaker to win 11-9. Meter, playing in the number two singles slot, lost the first set 7-5 and then took the second set 6-4 to set up the match-clinching tie-breaker. It was Meter's first collegiate singles victory. 

Bethel won two of the three doubles matches and then the first singles match to jump to a 3-1 lead. The only doubles win for Concordia was the number one team of Meter and Erica Tollefson (Jr., Madison, Minn.). The pair needed to go to a tie-breaker to narrowly defeat Bethel's pair of Jen Kastner and Becky Trickett. Meier and Tollefson are undefeated in doubles competition this season as they pushed their record to 4-0.

Besides Meter, the other three singles wins for Concordia were tallied by Miriam Wilhelm (Sr., Princeton, Minn.), Emily Waldahl (Fr., Aldrich, Minn.) and Annie Styba (Fr., Shoreview, Minn.). For Waldahl and Stab it was their first singles win of the year.
