DENVER - The University of Denver was defeated 7-0 by No. 34 Texas Tech in women's tennis action Friday night at the Denver Country Club.
"We played a very tough, highly ranked Texas Tech team and came out tough early on winning No.1 doubles," head coach Jeremy Wurtzman said. "In the singles we came out and had some chances to win some first sets. When you pay against a team like this you really have to take advantage of your opportunities, I think we let some go and that was the huge difference tonight."
DU, playing its third straight match without sophomore Elena Najera (San Diego, Calif.), falls to 5-3 with the loss. Texas Tech improves to 6-1 with its fifth consecutive win.
Bergner fell to Elizabeth Ullathorne 6-2, 4-6, 6-2 in No. 1 singles, while Caroline Schnell (Greenwood Village, Colo.) was defeated by Rashmi Teltumbde 6-3, 6-3 in No. 2 singles.
Samantha Adams beat Emma Isberg (Tyreso, Sweden) at No. 3 singles and Caroline Starck beat Rath 7-5, 6-4 at No. 4.
The Crimson and Gold return to action on Sunday, Feb. 19 to take on New Mexico in Albuquerque, New Mexico at 11 a.m. MT.
