Women’s Tennis Drops Match with Chicago State
Meg Modesto picked up her second win in the last three matches on Tuesday.

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 (Chesterton, Ind. / Chesterton) and Randi Wind (Park Ridge, Ill. / Maine South) provided the wins for the Crusaders.

How It Happened

  • Modesto allowed her momentum from a successful weekend that featured a match-clinching victory over Green Bay to carry over to Tuesday night. She prevailed in three sets over Carynne Lloyd 6-4, 2-6, 6-4.
  • Wind also needed three sets to capture her victory, beating Judit Aubets 6-1, 4-6, 6-3.
  • Paige Heuer (Munster, Ind. / Munster) put together a competitive match at No. 2 singles, but lost on a tiebreak in Set 3. She dropped the first set 3-6, then took the second 6-1 before falling 6-7 (4) in the decisive stanza.
  • The Crusaders lost in straight sets at No. 1, No. 4 and No. 5 singles and dropped all three doubles matches.

  • Modesto upped her season win total to five with Tuesday’s victory.
  • The Crusaders drop to 2-16, while the Cougars climb to 7-15.
