The ladies of SMU’s tennis squad (2-3 overall) claimed their second victory, and first since the beginning of the season versus Northwestern State (3-3 overall), 6-1.
Through six singles matches, the Mustangs were able to take five to go along with their three-match sweep in the doubles matches.
“This is a solid win over a good team,” said Kati Gyulai, women’s tennis head coach. “Our targets were accurate in doubles when it mattered, and we were able to close out matches to put us up 1-0. We didn’t look back and kept closing out the singles matches.”
Standouts for SMU included Edyta Cieplucha, who won both her singles match, 6-3 and 6-1, and her doubles match alongside Elena Fayner 8-3, and Vaszilisza Bulgakova, also winning in both events with a singles mark of 6-1 and 7-6 and a doubles win with Aleks Malyarchikova, 9-7.
Hristina Dishkova also performed well, winning 6-0 and 6-1 in her singles match.
SMU will hope to continue the run when it hosts Air Force at 1 p.m. Saturday.
