Gusties Pick Up Two Important Wins in Southern California

[April 5-6, 2002]

The Gustavus women's tennis team completed a very successful spring break trip to Southern California with wins over nationally ranked teams from Pomona-Pitzer and Claremont-Mudd-Scripps. The Gusties, who are currently rated #7 nationally, started the weekend with a 7-2 win over #8 Claremont-Mudd-Scripps. Coach Jon Carlson shuffled all three doubles teams which appeared to help as the Gusties swept all three doubles matches. Singles matches were won by #2 Ellen Anderson, #4 Kristin Donley, #5 Alison Kramer and #6 Kris Rosborough. On Saturday, the Gusties picked up a very important win over #6 Pomona-Pitzer, 8-1. The convincing win will really help the squad when seeding time comes around for the NCAA Championships. Doubles play was again important as the Gusties swept all three matches. Singles play was just as impressive with the only loss coming at #3 where Kara Smiley fell to Kelly Howard, 1-6, 5-7. Gustavus improves to 9-5 on the season. The Gusties will face St. Mary's at home on Wednesday and then take part in the Midwest Region Invitational in Madison, Wisconsin next Friday and Saturday.
