The Foresters gave a talented Olivet Nazarene University squad a good fight, but came up short 6-3 in their fall opener.
Stephanie Strong was HU's lone double winner on the day. She won 6-4, 6-1 at #1 singles and then teamed with Raelyn Althoff to get the 8-4 victory at #1 doubles. Freshman Haley Neiderhiser was the Foresters' other winner in the match. She went 6-3, 6-1 at #2 singles.
"Olivet will probably be the toughest team we play all year," said Coach Turner. "Stephanie and Haley played very well. Both ONU players were extremely difficult to play, but Stephanie and Haley were both very mentally tough."
