MILWAUKEE -- The Alverno College tennis team lost its season-opening dual match to visiting Edgewood College, 9-0, Saturday morning at McKinley Park.

Michelle Alexander opened her No. 1 singles match against Edgewood's Sydney Verbauwhede with a 7-6 victory in the first set, but wasn't able to pull out the win as she lost the final two sets 7-5, 10-6.

The visiting Eagles (2-4, 1-0 NACC) won the other singles matches in straight sets to complete the sweep.

The Inferno (0-1, 0-1 Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference) was then unable to complete its second scheduled match of the day versus Marian University as rain hit the Milwaukee area and halted the match shortly after doubles were completed.

No date has been announced on when the league match will be resumed.

Alverno hits the road tomorrow for a nonconference dual at Loras College at 12 p.m. in Dubuque, Iowa.
