Delaware State 6, Rider University 0
LEWES, Del.—Senior Marly Roche (Sussex/High Point Regional) won three games at first singles but it wasn’t enough as the Rider University women’s tennis team lost on the indoor courts in Lewes Delaware to Delaware State on Friday afternoon.
Roche lost at first singles 6-2, 6-1.
“This was a good experience for the team, playing such a quality opponent,” said head coach Ed Torres. “They (DSU) over powered us but you have to go through matches like this to continue to improve. Our team continues to work hard and playing strong opponents is the only way to get better.”
Due to a limited number of courts, only the six singles matches were contested.
“The surface was much quicker than the outdoor courts,” Torres added.
Rider hosts La Salle on April 16 in the final home match of the 2013 spring season.
