The Case Western Reserve University women's tennis team, ranked 19th in Division III, wrapped-up competition during its spring trip to California with an 8-1 loss to Wesleyan College at the Andulka Park Tennis Center in Riverside, California on Thursday.

The Spartans' lone win during the match came at fourth singles, where senior Surya Khadilkar defeated Wesleyan's Aashli Budhiraja 6-2, 5-7, 10-5.  Khadilkar improved to 7-0 overall in the spring, including a 3-0 mark in fourth-singles matches.
