Jordan Kopfer dropped a close 7-6(0), 6-4 match at No. 4 singles on Sunday.

The Valparaiso University women’s tennis team continued to play shorthanded in a 7-0 defeat to Milwaukee on Sunday at Match Point Tennis Club in Griffith. Valpo once again played with four players due to injuries and illness.

How It Happened

  • All four singles matches ended in straight sets, while the Panthers took No. 5 and No. 6 by forfeit. Jordan Kopfer (Eagan, Minn. / Eastview) put up a strong fight at fourth singles against Milwaukee’s Nikki Milner, but ultimately lost 7-6(0), 6-4.
  • The No. 3 singles match also featured tight sets as Randi Wind (Park Ridge, Ill. / Maine South) fell 6-3, 7-6(4) to Nicole Clarke.
