Bearcats ease by Tigers 9-0 in MIAA tennis
MARYVILLE, Mo. – The Northwest Missouri State women’s tennis team picked up its second straight victory Friday en route to a 9-0 win over Fort Hays State at Frank Grube Courts.
The Bearcats have managed to get back to .500 at 8-8 on the year, but more importantly 3-0 in MIAA play. The win is also the second straight shutout of an MIAA opponent after last weekend’s 9-0 win over Truman State.
Continuing with solid play, the Bearcat doubles tandems swept all three matches taking a lead into singles play. Alexis Bartek and Camila Quesada won 8-0 at the No. 1 position while Erika Leston and Leslee Feldhaus had almost the same ease winning 8-1.
Singles play proved a tad tougher for Northwest, but in the end it was all green and white.
Camila Quesada took a 6-3, 6-2 win at No. 1 singles while Alexis Bartek improved her season record in singles to 11-2 with a 4-6, 6-1, 10-5 win over Caitlyn Wark of Fort Hays State.
Northwest takes a break from MIAA play but its schedule gets no easier as the Bearcats host Central Oklahoma Saturday morning. Play is scheduled to start at 10 a.m. as a part of the Bearcat Spring Showcase including the Northwest Track and Field Open along with Bearcat baseball and softball starting at 1 p.m.
