COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The University of North Dakota women’s tennis team suffered a 7-0 loss to Air Force on Tuesday evening to cap off competition in Colorado.

The Falcons won eight matches without losing a set, while the No. 2 doubles match went unfinished after Air Force claimed the doubles point.

Preethi Kasilingam put up the closest fight in the No. 2 singles match forcing her opponent to win by a score of 7-5 in the first set.

The loss drops North Dakota to 7-10 on the season, but the Fighting Hawks still own a 3-3 record in Big Sky competition.

UND returns to action this weekend, March 17-18, with duals against Creighton and South Dakota. Both duals will be played in Sioux Falls, S.D. The Fighting Hawks will resume Big Sky action on March 25 against Sacramento State.
