Women's Tennis Puts Up A Fight Against MSU

April 8, 2006

BOISE, Ida. - The Gonzaga University women's tennis team won at No. 1 singles and No. 1 doubles on Saturday morning but could not manage a win in any of the other matches as Montana State University picked up a closely contested match, 6-1, in Boise, Idaho.

Erin Humphrey and Sydney Lederhouse won 8-5 playing at No. 1 doubles, but MSU was able to win at No. 2 double and No. 3 doubles to capture the first point of the match. MSU won 8-2 at No. 2 doubles and 8-4 at No. 3.

Emily Anderson won the Bulldogs lone point at No. 1 singles knocking off Nuria Lozano in two sets, 6-4, 7-5. Carrie Schofield lost 1-0 in the tie-break at No. 5 singles to Allison Fey as Gonzaga had a chance for a second point in the match. The other four singles matches were all competitive but MSU was able to win each in straight sets.

Gonzaga continues to show improvement as the season progresses. Montana State had defeated the Bulldogs easily in the first meeting between the schools played in Bozeman in late January.

Gonzaga will play at Eastern Washington University next week and then host the Eagles on April 18 as they prepare for the West Coast Conference Tournament on April 22-24.
