LEWISTON, Idaho - (Mar. 5) With a 6-1 win over San Diego Christian College on Sunday, the Seattle U women's tennis team improved their overall record to 6-7 on the season. 

Despite not playing their best match, SU was able to control the the pace and demonstrated the mental toughness that head coach Adam Reeb has been searching for this season.

"Really proud of our team today, it was a great effort by the girls," said Reeb. 

"We've talked a lot about being mentally tough and just staying in the moment, and the ladies did just that today.

We didn't necessarily play our best, but we hung tough and gave ourselves the best chance which is all we can ask for. Solid effort by our team moving into conference play in a couple of weeks."

Michelle Lui and Caroline Maltby won their doubles match by a score of 7-6 as did Kailyn Skjonsby ans Majidah Cochran.

In singles play, Michelle Lui once again earned a win playing in the No. 1 spot as she defeated SDCC's Brittany Augustine 7-6, 6-1. 

Barbara Carey also performed well in singles as she beat Brooke Ferslov-Jensen 6-1, 6-2 in the No. 2 spot. Audrey Scott had a similar result in the No. 6 position as she won her match 6-1, 6-2. 

The Redhawks return to the court next Saturday, Mar. 11, as they host George Fox at the Tennis Center at Sand Point.
