Leos Fall To Hens, Tigers In Conference Matches
After a non-conference victory over Pacific Lutheran, the University of La Verne tennis team resumed conference play over the weekend against Pomona-Pitzer and Occidental. The SCIAC proved treacherous as the Leopards dropped a 9-0 decision to the Sagehens at The Claremont Club on Friday and were edged out by the Tigers 6-3 the following afternoon in Eagle Rock.
In singles play, Allison Moncrief battled back from an opening set loss to beat Jessica Go 3-6, 7-6, 6-1. At the four spot, Arielle Monteilh was impressive as she beat Isabelle Ying in straight sets 6-1, 6-3. Despite defeats, Luna, Allison Moncrief and Carly Tucker took their matches into the third set.
"It was a tough match, we battled and just need to learn from our mistakes," said Leopards head coach Yolanda Duron.
