The Valparaiso University women’s tennis team’s season came to a close on Sunday with a 5-2 loss to Detroit Mercy at the Valpo Tennis Complex. It may not be reflected in the form of victories, but the Crusaders (2-18, 1-8 Horizon) showed significant signs of improvement down the stretch, winning at least two matches in each of their last five. Seniors Paige Heuer, Kathleen Hebble and Morgan Paras all participated in the final matches of their collegiate careers on Sunday.
The Valparaiso University women’s tennis team gave Oakland everything it could handle on Saturday afternoon at the Valpo Tennis Complex, but the chance to knock off the Grizzlies came up short in a 4-3 defeat. The Crusaders have made progress in recent matches, scoring two team points or more in each of their last four.
The Valparaiso University tennis programs were well represented as the Horizon League announced its men’s and women’s all-academic teams on Friday. Jeffrey Schorsch (Perrysburg, Ohio / Perrysburg) and Kyle Dunn (Fond du Lac, Wis. / Fond du Lac) have both notched places on the men’s all-academic team, while Kathleen Hebble (Sellersburg, Ind. / Silver Creek) achieved a spot on the women’s all-academic team.
The Valparaiso University women’s tennis team picked up wins at two singles spots on Tuesday at the Valpo Tennis Complex, but couldn’t corral the team triumph in a 5-2 loss to the Cougars of Chicago State. Meg Modesto and Randi Wind provided the wins for the Crusaders.
