La Verne Scores 8-1 Win Over Lutes

LA VERNE, Calif. - Visiting Pacific Lutheran picked up a win at No. 1 doubles but that was its only victory Wednesday as the host La Verne Leopards took an 8-1 non-conference women's tennis win at Claremont Club.

Leah Newell and Tina Aarsvold took a 9-7 win over Lila Luna and Tarika Krisamurthy in the featured doubles match. Other than the No. 2 singles match, where Aarsvold took Krisamurthy to three sets before losing 7-5, 4-6, 6-0, the Leopards were simply too much for the Lutes.

PLU, 2-13 overall this season, hosts Whitman and Whitworth in Northwest Conference matches on Friday and Saturday, respectively. Those are the final two matches of the season for the Lutes.
