DECORAH, IowaThe Augustana women’s tennis team faced two of its toughest opponents of the season and fell 9-0 to St. Cloud State and 8-1 to Luther on Sunday, April 18 in Decorah, Iowa.  Senior Emily Doemland (Downers Grove South HS, Westmont, Ill.) and sophomore Brittany Reece (Naperville Neuqua Valley HS, Naperville, Ill.) picked up the lone win for the Vikings with a victory at No. 3 doubles against Luther.  The Blue & Gold are 12-13 overall and 6-4 this spring.

In the morning match against St. Cloud State, Augustana picked up 11 games in doubles, but was unable to pick up a victory.  Seniors Jenna Richardson (Melrose Park Walther Lutheran HS, Bellwood, Ill.) and Tricia Crawford (Decorah HS, Decorah, Iowa) dropped an (8-4) decision to Jacquelyn Doll and Kelly Freese at No. 1.  Doemland and junior Sheri Hendricks (Wheaton Warrenville South HS, Warrenville, Ill.) lost by the same score against Samantha Boushek and Tanya Halloran at No. 3.  Junior Tricia Sapio (Barrington HS, Hoffman Estates, Ill.) and freshman Krista Panko (Geneva HS, Geneva, Ill.) fell (8-3) at No. 2 against Catarina Franca and Kayla Lenz.
