The Central College women’s tennis team picked up its first win of the spring season on Friday. They surrendered just one loss in an 8-1 victory over Northwestern.

The Dutch got an 8-1 win at #1 doubles from seniors Sara Dale and Stephanie Gibbons and an 8-3 victory at #2 doubles from Emily Swartz and Chelsea Johnson.

At #1 singles, Dale won her third straight match, 6-1, 6-4. Gibbons battled at #2 before taking the third-set tiebreaker 1-0. Swartz, Carissa Bane and Johnson were easy winners at #3, #4 and #5, respectively, and Cairn Reisch won a tiebreaker to claim #6 singles.

The Red Raiders drop to 3-4, snapping a three-game win streak.

The Dutch (1-2 spring) continue tennis action today, facing Simpson College (0-5 spring) at noon at the A.N. Kuyper Athletics Complex courts. Central topped Simpson 8-1 in the regular season before snagging a 7-1 win in the Iowa Conference tournament last fall.
