The Foresters traveled to Manchester College for their season opener and nipped the Spartans 5-4. After dropping two of the three doubles matches, HU had some work to do and the middle of the lineup was up to the task. The Foresters picked up four wins in singles, just enough to just get by Manchester.
Freshmen Raelyn Althoff and Calli Fike led the way with two wins apiece in the match. The two first teamed for the 8-3 win at #2 doubles and then Althoff won 8-4 at #2 singles and Fike got the 8-3 victory at #4. Other Forester winners included Kendra Ganz (8-6) at #3 singles and Jessica Deter (8-5) at #5.
