Lauber, Bauer Fair Well in Loss to Regionally-Ranked Kenyon

The College of Wooster's Elissa Lauber and Erin Bauer played well in their singles matches, but could not quite score a team point in the Fighting Scots' 9-0 loss to North Coast Athletic Conference power Kenyon College Monday inside the Kenyon Athletic Center in Gambier, Ohio.

Kenyon (8-7, 1-0 NCAC East), ranked No. 9 in the most recent NCAA Div. III Central Region poll, jumped out to a 3-0 lead during the doubles action. Lauber and Kelsey Jenkins scored the most games for Wooster (4-11, 0-3 NCAC) in an 8-3 setback to the 13th-rated doubles tandem in the region.

Lauber also faced a regionally-ranked singles player at the top of the lineup in the form of No. 9 Prita Kidder, and she pushed her to a 6-3, 6-2 decision, while Bauer extended her opponent at the fifth slot to a third set tiebreaker before falling 6-3, 2-6, 1-0 (10-0).

The Scots continue prepping for the fast-approaching NCAC Tournament with a trip to central Ohio and Ohio Wesleyan University (8-6, 1-1 NCAC West) on Thursday.
