WAUWATOSA, Wis. – The Mount Mary University tennis team lost to Concordia Chicago 6-3 today at Hart Park. The win gives the Cougars a 2-6 (2-6) record on the year and drops the Blue Angles to 1-9 (1-7).

The Blue Angels did not give up. Battling each point to the limit, Ana Mercado (Jr./Grafton, Wis.) took her team point 7-5, 6-3 over the No. 1 singles Emma Renteria.
Amy Gossett (Fr./Franklin, Wis.) followed suit with a convincing 6-1, 6-2 win over Ellie Smith. The final team point went to Syndey Dahlstrom (Sr./Marquette, Mich.) in a narrow victory over CUC's Hannah Kaul.
