-- West 7, Parker 0—West was too much for the Vikings on Thursday.

Becky (Harmata) played very well at No. 1 (singles)," Long said. "She's just a few points away from taking over matches."
Rosalie Sellman and Elizabeth Severance won the only set for the Vikings, but fell at No. 1 doubles, 6-2, 1-6, 6-2.
"They played a great second set, and then fell back into some old ways," Long said.
The Vikings play host to conference power Verona on Tuesday.
