SEWARD, Neb. – The Concordia women’s tennis team opened its spring slate on Saturday. The Bulldogs faced Grand View University inside the Walz Fieldhouse and were defeated 6-3. Concordia is now 0-2 on the season while the Vikings improve to 3-1.

Head coach Joel Reckewey said, “It was good to get out there and take the court. I was pretty impressed with the women’s place, it was unfortunate we lost. The match was really competitive, especially the doubles.”

The number three doubles team of Hannah Boe and Amanda von Seggern was the only winning team for Concordia in the doubles matches. The duo defeated their opponents, 9-8, 7-3. The Vikings led 3-1 going into the singles matches.

Two Bulldogs were victorious in singles. Boe defeated Hannah Walljasper of Grand View, 6-3, 6-2. In an 8-3 triumph, Kayla Smock won over Alyssa Stanczak.

“I’m pretty impressed with Hannah,” Reckewey said. “She’s in her sophomore year now so she has some experience…she had a couple wins and it shows that she’s a good role model. The other girls can look at her performance and see how she really fights and never gives up.”

The Bulldogs will take a break short of two weeks before they are back in action. On Feb. 5, Concordia will travel to Liberty Missouri to take on William Jewell College at 11 a.m.
