Sioux Falls, SD—The Oral Roberts women’s tennis team stumbled to two-straight losses Saturday afternoon, falling 4-0 to IPFW and 4-2 to IUPUI on day-two of the Summit Cluster at the Sioux Empire Fitness Complex.
It was a quick exit for ORU in the first match against IPFW, as the 24-3 (7-0) Mastodons won all but one contest by at least three points.
The closest the Golden Eagles could come was in #1 singles, where Lina Semenova dropped a tough 7-5, 6-3 bout to Amy Recht.
ORU fared slightly better in the afternoon finale, as Semenova clawed out a 6-2, 6-2 win over Danielle Haefele in #1 singles.
Kondrashova was back in the win column with a 6-0, 6-4 victory over Alisha Cummings in #4 singles.
Dollar battled tough in #3 singles competition, before falling (6-4), 6-2, 6-3 to Vanessa Whyte.
No doubles matches were played in the IUPUI contest.
With the loss, ORU falls to 4-11 for the season and 3-4 in Summit play. The Golden Eagles look to wrap-up the regular season on Saturday, as they square off against Centenary at 2:00 p.m. A win over the Ladies would place ORU in a tie with Oakland for the fourth and final spot in the Summit tournament. The Golden Eagles defeated Oakland 6-1 on April 2 and would hold the tie-breaker.
