Meg Chiumento picked up a three-set win at third singles against #8 Chicago.

In its first dual match of the season, the Denison women's tennis team suffered a 7-2 setback to eighth-ranked Chicago on Saturday at the Jasper Tennis Center on the campus of Kenyon College.

The Big Red picked up its two victories at second and third singles.  Sophomore Taylor Hawkins and Meg Chiumento both posted three-set wins. At the second flight, Hawkins dropped a 6-2 decision to Helen Sdvizkhov. However, the second-year player rebounded with back-to-back 6-2 victories to take the flight.  Chiumento also suffered a setback (6-1) in the opening set of her match.  The No. 3 singles player also rallied from the early deficit to win the next two sets with matching 6-3 scores.

Denison falls to 0-1, while the Maroons improve to 1-1 on the year.  DU returns to action next Saturday when they take on Allegheny College at the Westwood Racquet Club in Erie, Pa.  Match time is slated for 3 p.m.
