Rams Tennis Routed by Creighton
FORT COLLINS – The Colorado State tennis team, with only five players available for singles, suffered a 5-2 loss to Creighton at the CSU Tennis Complex on Saturday.
“We played well to get the doubles point, but we will absolutely have to step up our singles tomorrow,” CSU head coach Jarod Camerota said. “It’s tough with injuries, but it’s how the seasons go and a lot of teams are having to deal with it.”
Sophomore Solene Crawley and freshman Emma Corwin teamed up to win at No. 3 doubles by a score of 6-1, and teammates Riley Reeves and Emily Kolbow did the same at No. 2 to give CSU the opening point and a 1-0 match lead.
Creighton automatically earned a singles point with CSU unable to field a player at No. 6. The Bluejays then rattled off five consecutive wins in straight sets to seal the match, although CSU freshman Emily Luetschwager rallied to win at No. 2 over Michaela Henne, 3-6, 6-1, 6-3.
Luetschwager, a native of Stevens Point, Wis., is now 9-4 in singles on the year, all coming at the No. 2 position.
The Rams will hot Weber State on Sunday morning.
