Brennenstuhl wins twice but women's tennis falls

By Doug Fitzgerald published March 31, 2004

Despite a pair of wins by senior Danele Brennenstuhl, the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs women's tennis team was defeated 7-2 by the Colorado State-Pueblo Thunderwolves Wednesday at the Broadmoor.

Brennenstuhl defeated September Sisneros 6-3, 6-3 at No. 5 singles. Earlier, Brennenstuhl teamed with Kim Howard to win at No. 3 doubles 8-4.

The Mountain Lions nearly took a 2-1 lead during doubles play. Lauren Daniels and Kim Barberi held an 8-7 lead, but Barberi's serve, which to that point had been formidable, suddenly disappeared. She had four double faults, including one when serving for match point, during a marathon 10-point game that CSU-Pueblo eventually won. The Thunderwolves went on to take the tiebreaker 7-3.

"Things like that happen all the time," said Brennenstuhl. "Tennis is such a mental game."

Daniels, Barberi, Jessika Kardel and Katie McPhail all dropped their singles matches in straight sets. Nikki Duval, playing out of the No. 6 slot, was beaten 8-4 by Annette Gibson in a single-set match that was shortened due to court availability and darkness.
