SEWARD, Neb. – While welcoming two opponents from the Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference to the Fieldhouse on back-to-back days, the Concordia University women’s tennis team earned wins by identical 7-2 scores. The Bulldogs protected their home turf on Friday and Saturday (March 2-3) by toppling Sterling College and Kansas Wesleyan University.

Fourth-year head coach Joel Reckewey’s squad improved to 5-3 overall with a big week of spring break action ahead.

In Friday’s win over Sterling, Concordia took four of six singles matches and all three doubles matches. The Bulldogs also swept through doubles action and won four of six singles contests on Saturday. Junior Katelinn Wurm, who played at No. 2 singles on Friday and then at No. 3 on Saturday, notched a pair of singles wins while also teaming up with Claudia Miranda Viera on two doubles triumphs. Reckewey used four different doubles teams as part of perfect weekend in that category.

Six Bulldogs turned in one singles win apiece on the weekend: Annie Horn, Allison Marshall, Miranda Viera, Kayla Smock, Amanda VonSeggern and Kirsten Wagner. Concordia continues to enjoy success at the bottom of its lineup. It has gone 7-1 at both No. 6 singles and No. 3 doubles.

Concordia improved upon its 6-3 win at Kansas Wesleyan that occurred back on Sept. 7. The Bulldogs are now 3-1 this season against KCAC foes.

Beginning on March 7, Concordia will open up a stretch of four-straight days with a match. During that time, the Bulldogs will take on four different teams while touring the state of Kansas: Tabor College, Bethel College, Hesston College and Friends University.
