Today the Cornerstone Women's Tennis team opened their season on the road with a 9-0 loss to Bethel College. Ashley Greene & Janie Silvers, as well as the doubles team of Greene & Heidi Boesl all had extremely close competitive matches but fell just a little short. Coach Erickson on the match: "Obviously it would have been nice to start the season with a win, but this Bethel team is solid up and down their lineup. Our women played hard and well today but we couldn't quite close out some sets. This is something we are going to need to work on. When we have chances, we need to be able to capitalize on them. Still, I'm proud of the way that we played and am really excited for the rest of the season."
