Whittier Defeats PLU Women Netters

WHITTIER, Calif. - Caitlyn Hoerr and Saiyare Refaei picked up a win in doubles play, but that was Pacific Lutheran's only victory as the Lutes dropped an 8-1 non-conference women's tennis decision to the Whittier Poets on Tuesday afternoon.

Hoerr and Refaei defeated Lauren Gelgur and Maryrose Vigorita, 9-8 (7-3), at No. 3 doubles in what turned out to be the only truly close match of the day as Whittier improved its season record to 3-6.

Whittier won the other two doubles matches by 8-4 and 8-1 scores and lost only 15 total games and did not drop a set in the six singles matches.

PLU, now 2-12 for the season, finishes its spring break trip to California with a Wednesday afternoon match at University of La Verne.
