Denison dropped a 7-2 decision to fourth-ranked Carnegie Mellon University on Saturday afternoon in Granville.

After falling behind 2-0, the No. 1 doubles team of senior Sarah Short and junior Alex Marcell rallied for their 15th victory of the season.  The Big Red tandem struggled and found themselves behind 6-2 to the Tartans' Courtney Chin and Laura Chen.  Short and Marcell went on to score five of the next six points, and staved off four match points to tie the flight at 7-7.  The DU duo went on to break Chin and Chen's serve en route to grabbing their first lead of the match.  After a back-and-forth battle in their first match point of the day, Short and Marcell held serve to secure Denison's first point of the afternoon.

However, Carnegie Mellon captured five of six singles flights to secure their 14th victory of the season.  First-year Heather Abzug notched the Big Red victory at No. 5 singles.  Despite dropping the opening set 7-6 (7-3), Abzug rallied to post a pair of 6-3 decision in the second and third sets en route to her second-straight victory.

DU falls to 7-9 on the year, while CMU improves to 14-3.  Denison returns to the court on Sunday when they host Oberlin College at 1 p.m.
