Women's tennis opens spring portion of schedule
The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs women's tennis team opened the spring portion of its schedule Sunday with a 7-0 loss at Division I Air Force.
The Mountain Lions will play four of their next five matches against nonconference opponents. They face another Division I team, Colorado State, on February 27. CU-Colorado Springs will then Colorado College at home on March 9 before facing Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference foe Colorado State-Pueblo on March 30 on the road. The Mountain Lions will face their final nonconference opponent, Sonoma State, at home on April 1.
The tough nonconference matches should prepare CU-Colorado Springs well for the RMAC portion of the schedule. From April 3-16, the Mountain Lions will play six matches - five of which are against RMAC opponents.
Sunday, Jessika Kardel provided the Mountain Lions' highlight by pushing her Division I opponent, Katie Tomkie, to seven games in her first set and nine game in the second set.
