'M' tennis drops trio'
By Drew Beaver
Daily Sports Writer
Was it the heat of southern California? Could it have been the difficulty adjusting
to outdoor courts? Perhaps it was the quality of the opposition. Whatever it was, it
certainly was not a great weekend for the Michigan women's tennis team.
The 24th-ranked Wolverines (1-0 Big Ten, 4-4 overall) dropped all three of their
matches last week, losing to No. 21 San Diego State on Thursday and No. 10
Pepperdine on Friday before being upset by No. 30 San Diego on Saturday.
"I think certainly, this was a wake-up call," Michigan coach Bitsy Ritt said. "Theo
key is to come back tomorrow and work really hard."
The Wolverines began their swing across the west coast with a match against San
Diego State. The Aztecs took a 4-2 lead after singles play, despite three-set victories
by Erryn Weggenman and Alison Sinclair, at No. 4 and No. 6 singles, respectively.
The Wolverines needed to sweep the doubles matches in order to pull out a team
victory. They came up short, however, getting only one win from the No. 2 doubles
team of Weggenman and senior captain Sora Moon.
Pepperdine is the highest-ranked team Michigan has faced this season. Once again
the Wolverines fell behind 4-2, with Pepperdine sweeping the lower four flights. The
Waves took all three doubles matches for a 7-2 win.
The Wolverines' final chance for a victory came against San Diego, a team they
beat last year.
Danielle Lund was the only Wolverine to earn a singles victory against San Diego,
with a three-set win at No. 2 singles. The Toreros won the other five singles match-
es and the No. 2 and No. 3 doubles matches en route to a 7-2 victory.
