Emily Burchfield fell in No. 1 singles 4-6, 6-3, 1-6; and Lexi Blanchette dropped the No. 2 singles match 3-6, 5-7.
In doubles action, Jessica Riddle and Amanda d'Almeida lost 2-6, 2-6; Brooke Monroe and Haley Marx lost 3-6, 3-6; and Grayson Akins and Jamie Price lost 2-6, 2-6.
Stange said, "Although our match as a whole resulted in a 5-0 loss, the bright side is that we now see what needs to be done if we are to be competitive with Granite Falls in the future."
