January 29th, 2005

Despite a 7-0 loss to the University of San Francisco (1-1), Head Coach Kathy LeSage was upbeat about her team’s performance against the NCAA Division I school. “With Masako (Horino) out, we were playing without our strength lineup,” reported LeSage.

“Jenny Renfer is on fire,” proclaimed LeSage. Renfer plays at number one singles and doubles. “She is healthy and back to playing like she did in her freshman year – only better.” Renfer lost 6-4, 6-3 to USF’s Camille Pamart in singles.
