AURORA—On a sunny and cool afternoon in Aurora, the Lady Knights tennis crew saw their fortunes cool for a bit—a result of a 4-3 dual loss to Illinois Math and Science Academy.

The setback brings Kaneland down to 4-2 in head-to-heads.

The 4-3 loss had bright spots, however.

The lone singles win came as a result of Angelica Emmanouil’s 6-2, 6-2 victory over Emily Ling.

Kaneland did find doubles success, as well. The No. 1 threat of Madi Jurcenko and Amelia Napiorkowski took a 6-4, 6-0 win. No. 2 double unit Jenna Bicos and Jess Woodward came away with a 6-3, 2-6, 6-2 win.
