Jan. 30, 2010
The Marquette women's tennis team competed in two away matches Saturday, falling to No. 46 Indiana, 6-1, in morning play before traveling to Indianapolis for dual action against IUPUI, winning 6-1.
No. 46 Indiana (5-0) took the doubles point early despite all matches being within three points. The Hoosiers then dominated singles play, winning each match from the No. 1 to No. 5 spots. At the No. 6 position, sophomore Gillian Hush captured the first set, 6-4, and continued to play Megan Matter close into the second set, eventually coming out on top, 7-5, for Marquette's lone point of the day in Bloomington, Ind.
Following the match against the Hoosiers, the Golden Eagles traveled an hour northeast to IUPUI. In Indianapolis, Marquette jumped out to a quick lead, capturing the doubles point in a convincing fashion. Juniors Christina Ruiz and Rachael Hush tallied an 8-1 win from the top position, followed by sophomores Paola Calderon/Ogla Fischer, 8-2, and senior Maggie Wilson and Gillian Hush, who did not give up a point. In singles action, Fischer, Kelly Barry, Ruiz, Gillian Hush, and Elly Strother each won handily, led by Barry, Gillian Hush and Strother who tallied unblemished records.
Marquette (4-1) hosts Northern Illinois Friday before a road match at Illinois Sunday.
