Falcons Shut Out Idaho State, 7-0
Feb. 15, 2009
The Air Force women's tennis team won its third consecutive match Sunday, defeating Idaho State, 7-0, after the match was postponed from Saturday due to power outages at the Academy. With the victory, Air Force improved to 6-5 this season, matching the number of wins the Falcons had all of last season.
The Falcons won the doubles point for the fifth consecutive match, and the Falcons' No. 2 team of sophomore Christen Monreal and freshman Allie Chermel won for the sixth straight time, defeating Lisel Lewis and Risa Fujiwara, 8-3. Junior Erlyn Rudico and sophomore Katrina Eromin won at the top spot, 8-2, over Sophie Dang and Stephanie Roldan.
Idaho State only had five players available for the match, so the Bengals had to forfeit the No. 3 doubles match, as well as the No. 6 singles match.
Air Force cruised through the five singles matches, winning all of them in straight sets. Monreal won at the No. 1 position, 6-0, 6-2, over Lewis, while freshman Shannon Young took the No. 4 match, 6-1, 6-1, over Fujiwara.
Air Force returns to action next Friday, Feb. 20 when it hosts Akron at 8:30 a.m., and Weber State at 2 p.m.
