Women’s Tennis Sends Squad to Boise State

Randy Isbelle | LC State Sports Information Intern

BOISE – With half of the team returning from Georgia, the Lewis-Clark State Women’s Tennis team dropped two matches with NCAA Division I opponent Boise State at Boas Indoor Tennis Center on Saturday.
The two losses moved the Warrior record to 3-12 on the season.
“The women were warriors today,” assistant coach Ryan LaPlante said. “It was so encouraging to see them fighting for every ball during their match and then immediately stepping off the court to cheer on their teammates.”
MATCH ONE: Boise State def. LC State 7-0
Carisa Liebenberg and Naiara Montero pushed their No. 1 doubles contest to a ninth game, but Pauline Ernstberger and Shauna Heffernan won 6-3.
Liebenberg dropped the No. 1 singles contest to Lorelyz Marruffo 6-3, 6-2. Montero earned a pair of game wins in her No. 2 singles match. Paige Noble-Lucas took a couple of games in No. 4 singles as well.

“We truly made the Broncos earn every point. This was greatly exemplified in Beatriz’s match,” LaPlante said. “She was flying around everywhere to get every ball back over the net. She forced a deciding third-set tiebreak after winning three straight games to take the second set.”
The Warriors were only able to win one game in the three doubles contests combined. Larissa Couto and Liebenberg earned the single win in a 6-1 loss in No. 3 doubles.
