PLAYER OF THE MATCH
Without Olivia Boden's extraordinary effort in the sixth and final singles match of the afternoon, the Raiders would have seen their three game losing streak cut back down to zero. Boden won the first set easily before falling in a hard fought second set. The match went to a tiebreak which she pulled out in the Red & White's favor by the score of 10-7.
The Raiders will take on Ripon on the road on Thursday before heading back into conference play with a home matchup against Illinois Tech on Saturday.
