The No. 5 Seward County Lady Saints dropped their first match of the 2017 season Saturday in Plano, Texas, falling 5-4 in a nailbiter against No. 10 St. Petersburg to wrap up their weekend in the Collin County Bash. 

The Lady Saints got off to a good start, taking a 2-1 lead after double action. Sarah Manseri and Steffeny Burmudez teamed for an 8-4 win at No. 2 while the ever steady Tadi Mrewa and Madison Hoelting earned an 8-4 win at No. 3 to give the Lady Saints the lead. 

Seward struggled in singles action though. The Lady Saints lone wins were at No. 4 and No. 5 where Bermudez and Mrewa took straight set wins home, but the same happened to Seward at No. 1, No. 2, and No. 6, including 6-0 second set blankings at the top two spots to tie the score at 4-4.  The match came down to the battle at No. 3 where Seward’s Lisa Suzuki took on St. Petersburg’s Kokoro Chishaki.  The match went three sets with Chishaki eventually prevailing 10-8 to clinch the math for the Titans 5-4. 

The loss drops the Lady Saints to 2-1 on the year while St. Pete remains unbeaten at 4-0. 

Seward will have a while to regroup, taking this week off before returning to the court on February 24th when they travel across the state to Emporia to take on the Hornets in a Friday dual.
