Women's tennis tops Mesa State

By Doug Fitzgerald published September 17, 2004

Natasha Vander Molen, Jessika Kardel and Nikki Duval each swept her singles and doubles matches as the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs women's tennis team defeated the Mesa State Mavericks 6-3 Friday at the Country Club of Colorado.

The Mountain Lions are now 2-0 for the 2004-05 season, both of which were Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference matches. CU-Colorado Springs has won five of its past six matches dating back to April 17. Prior to that, CU-Colorado Springs had lost 12 consecutive matches.

A big part of that improvement has been team chemistry.

"We're finally having fun on the court and playing like a team," said senior Kim Barberi. "Everyone is supporting each other."
