Kokomo 4, Northwestern 1

“It was a tough match,” Kokomo coach Natalie Rainey said. “It could’ve easily gone 4-1 for Northwestern. It was pretty intense with three matches that went three sets. To our credit, we won all three so I think that says a lot about our mental toughness. I’m proud of them for sticking with it. Regina got her first win of the year, so I’m really proud of her.”
For Northwestern, Emily Harshman picked up a 6-3, 6-2 win over Amanda Tran.
