MILWAUKEE--The Marquette women's tennis team earned its second consecutive victory and sweep with a 7-0 win over IUPUI on Saturday evening at the Helfaer Tennis Stadium.

Tormos continued her excellent play with a dominant 6-0, 6-0 decision at No. 4 singles, while Ambrosio's 6-2, 6-2 win at the No. 1 position clinched the match for the Golden Eagles (2-0). For the second time today, MU did not drop a set.
"It is a great start to get our first two wins of the season," head coach Jody Bronson said. "Our opponents played us very hard and they forced us to be resilient. I am very happy with the way that our team responded to the pressue in the second match and overall. It takes a lot of energy to play two matches in one day with a small team like ours. We battled through to claim two hard fought wins. Today we laid a good foundation for the rest of the season and I we learned a lot today."
The Golden Eagles will return to action on Friday, Jan. 29 when the squad hosts UIC at Noon CT.
