BIG RAPIDS, Mich. - Calvin dropped its first match of the young 2019 season, falling at Division II Ferris State University 6-1 Thursday night inside the Ferris State Racquet and Fitness Center.
Ferris State gained the early momentum, sweeping the three doubles flights to pick up the lone pro-set point.
Calvin gained its lone point of the match at No. 1 singles as sophomore Leah Newhof (Grand Rapids, Mich./Grand Rapids Christian HS) gained a 6-2, 6-2 victory over Patricia Martin Gomez. Newhof is now 9-0 on the 2018-19 season (including fall tournament play) and 3-0 in dual match singles play.
Calvin returns to action on March 1 when it travels to Wheaton College (Il.) for a 5 p.m. (CST) match.
