WASHINGTON- The Catholic University of America's women's tennis team was defeated Monday afternoon by Scranton University.  The Royals were able to pick up three points in the singles competition that would eventually clinch the victory against CUA. With this loss, the Cards fall to 0-2 in conference play and are currently on a seven-game losing skid with only eight games left to play. 

Even though being on the losing end of the match there were some bright spots to the day, as the Cardinals picked up victories by junior Rachel Tenuta (Fayetteville, N.C./Fayetteville) and senior leader Emily McGlynn (Tallahassee, Fla./Leon) in singles competition.  Tenuta won her match decisively in two sets 6-1, 6-1 and McGlynn was able to win in two sets as well 6-2, 7-5.  The Cards are facing a must-win situation as they approach the Landmark Championships three games out of the fourth and final spot.

The Cardinals will travel to Madison, New Jersey to face conference rival Drew University in another tough league match up.  The contest is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. Saturday.
