Pioneers Power Past Loggers, 8-1

TACOMA, Wash. - One day after picking up their first win of 2010, the Puget Sound Loggers weren't quite as fortunate on Saturday afternoon, falling to Lewis & Clark Pioneers, 8-1, in a Northwest Conference women's tennis match on Saturday afternoon at the UPS Tennis Pavilion in Tacoma, Wash.

The undefeated Pioneers took the 3-0 lead following doubles play as Lewis & Clark used a strong lineup to power past the Logger pairs.  In singles play, the Loggers managed a lone win in the sixth position as senior Ashley Dombrow (Lake Forest, Ill./The Ethel Walker School) outlasted Macrina Sharpe, 3-6, 6-4, 1-0.  Puget Sound almost picked up as second win in the fourth spot as Ada Yu (Salem, Ore./McKay) went three sets with Jill Coleman before falling, 7-5, 4-6, 1-0.

The Loggers hit the road next Saturday, traveling to Forest Grove, Ore. to take on Pacific before returning to Tacoma on Sunday afternoon to take on Pacific Lutheran at home.
