Women's Tennis Falls to UPR-Rio Piedras in Puerto Rico

Amy Shaw San Juan, Puerto Rico -- March 21, 2009 -- Kyla Walgren put up the best fight, but in the end it was not enough to prevent the University of Puerto Rico-Rio Piedras women's tennis team from defeating Springfield College, 9-0, earlier today in SC's last match in Puerto Rico during Spring Break. As the match was not played against a four-year U.S. institution, the match did not count on Springfield's W-L record.
