Loras, 5

Dubuque, 3


The Loras College women's tennis team returned to the win column on Tuesday evening with a win over University of Dubuque. It was the third Iowa Conference win of 2013 and first road win of the year. 


Loras won three of the top four singles matches and the top two doubles matches on their way to the win column.


Elizabeth Dickhut swept her #1 singles match 6-0 and 6-0 over Chelsea Borden. Jessica Dickhut nearly did the same at #2 singles, defeating Stephanie LoCasto, 6-0 and 6-2. The Duhawks earned their other singles win from the #4 slot and Carrie Crabill. The freshman won 6-3, 6-2 over her opponent.


The Dickhut sisters teamed up for their fourth doubles win of the year, this time 8-2. Caroline Rainey and Est Mungai earned another victory at #2 – a hard fought 9-8 (7-4) win.


The #5 singles match that included Loras' Est Mungai was halted due to darkness.


Elizabeth Dickhut remains atop the Duhawks' win list with five.


The team is home twice over the next four days. St. Ambrose comes to Dubuque on Thursday at 4:15 and Coe is here for a 1:00 PM start on Saturday.
