A last-minute pairing of two freshmen turned out well for the Central College women’s tennis team, as the tandem of Anna Striegel and Emily Koontz made an impressive run in the Iowa Conference Individual Tournament.

Despite having never played together before, the duo claimed runner-up honors in Flight “B” doubles play; ousting the eighth and fifth-seeded pairs from Loras and a fourth-seeded team from Buena Vista, before falling to seventh-seeded Luther.

The tournament concludes the fall season for the Central College women’s tennis team, where they compiled a 6-9 overall record.
