Women's tennis opens spring portion of schedule

By Doug Fitzgerald published January 23, 2005

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.
