The women’s tennis team won two matches against George Fox on March 19 with a score of 6-3, and against California Lutheran on March 23 with a score of 6-3 again.

However, it was no match against Lewis and Clark, losing 7-2 March 22.

“This season has been tough for us, as we have been playing some talented teams,” freshman Emily Erbin said in an email. “We have been struggling with our line up and trying to figure out the best double teams and single line up.”

During the latest tennis match against California Lutheran, junior Caroline Brigham and freshman Kwynn Ecton won with 8-4 in their doubles match, and sophomores Kaila Nip and Kelly Watanabe won 8-2.

All of the six singles flights were in straight sets, with Linfield winning four of those matches.

Nip won 6-2 and 6-1 at number three singles, and Ecton won 6-1 and 6-1 in the fourth flight.

Sophomore Gretchen Jernstedt finalized the match for the Wildcats with a win of 6-0 and 6-1.

“For my next match, I know I need to play my game and play smart tennis,” Erbin said. “This has been a year of learning filled with hard work and determination.”

The Wildcats next play at home, hosting Lewis and Clark on April 5.
