Pomona, California - Trinity's women's tennis team opened up its California road trip with a 7-2 loss at Pomona-Pitzer Colleges on Thursday night.
The Tigers fall to 3-8 on the season with the team's third consecutive defeat. Pomona took all three doubles matches to take an early 3-0 lead, then Trinity was able to grab just two wins in singles play.
Mackenzie Knoop earned a 6-2, 6-0 win at the top position to start off singles play and earn the first point of the night for the Tigers. The Sagehens quickly nabbed the next two points to clinch the match, though, leading 5-1 at the time.
Also earning a singles win was Gabrielle Roe from her spot at No. 5 for the Tigers. Roe leads all Trinity players with six wins in singles play this season, improving to 6-4 overall.
Kristy Hamilton and Stephanie Williamson lost a narrow 9-7 decision in the final doubles match, then Hamilton also lost her singles match 4-6, 6-7 (4-7) to end the evening for the Tigers.
