The Carroll University Women’s Tennis team opened the 2010 season with a Sept. 1 sweep over Alverno College.

Kate Rasmussen and Kara Paroubek both went 6-0, 6-0 against their respective opponents in singles play. In doubles play, Alyssa Larson and Rasmussen won their match 8-0.

The first Lady Pio loss of the season came on Sept. 4 against UW-Stevens Point. Carroll fell to the Pointers 5-4.

The teams split singles play, but the Pointers won the doubles matches 2-1.

Carroll had a repeat of the Pointer meet when they fell 5-4 to Lawrence University Sept. 8. Again, Carroll split the singles matches 3-3 but dropped doubles play 2-1.

The loss dropped them to 0-1 in Midwest Conference play.

Carroll’s match against Knox College Sept. 11 was postponed due to forecasted rain. The match has been rescheduled for later in the season.

Despite the forecasted weather, the Lady Pios were able to bounce back with a 7-2 win against Judson University that day. Carroll took five of the six singles matches, and won doubles 2-1.

The Lady Pioneers return to the court Sept. 17 when they take on St. Norbert College in De Pere, Wis.
