Central College took two of three doubles matches en route to a 6-3 season-opening women’s tennis victory at St. Ambrose yesterday.  Seniors  Sara Dale and Stephanie Gibbons were 8-6 winners at number one doubles while Juniors Trinh Le and Riley Taylor followed with an 8-5 win at number three doubles that coach Steve Tyler said turned the tide.   Dale and Gibbons also prevailed at numbers one and two singles while Kayla Donner won at number four and Chelsea Johnson notched her first collegiate win at number six.  Central makes its home debut against a pair of typically formidable Iowa Conference opponents Saturday meeting Coe College at 9 a.m. Saturday at the A.N. Kuyper Athletics Complex, then takes on Cornell College at 1 p.m.
