Boxers Swing Past Loggers, 7-2

FOREST GROVE, Ore. - A pair of wins in singles play wasn't enough to hold off the home Boxers as the Puget Sound Loggers fell to Pacific, 7-2, in a Northwest Conference women's tennis match on Saturday in Forest Grove, Ore.

The Boxers swept through doubles play to take a 3-0 lead into individual play but the Loggers managed to collect a pair of wins in singles play to avoid going home empty handed.

In the third individual spot, freshman Maddie Thiesse (Chanhassen, Minn./Holy Family) earned an easy win over Dayna Wong, 6-2, 6-2, to pull her season record to 4-4 in her first collegiate season.  Sophomore Devin Fields (San Francisco, Calif./Lick-Wilmerding) earned the win in the fifth spot, coming back to beat Dawn Greene, 2-6, 6-3, 1-0.

The Loggers return home on Sunday, when they play host to Pacific Lutheran in a match set to begin at 11:00 a.m. at the UPS Tennis Pavilion in Tacoma, Wash.
