Tennis Champions For the first time in more than 35 years, the Lewis & Clark Pioneers are conference champions in women’s tennis. On April 24, the team delivered a 5-2 win over Whitman College at the Lewis & Clark Tennis Dome to win the Northwest Conference Championship and qualify for the NCAA Championship tournament. “All the hard work that the players have put in—in the classroom and the weight room and the early morning workouts—it all paid off with a title,” says Head Tennis Coach Patrick Dreves, who has been named NWC Coach of the Year. “They’ve been working at it since they were little kids.”
