HUNTINGTON, Ind. - The HU women’s tennis team evened up their overall record to 6-6 with a pair of non-conference wins over the weekend.
Against Earlham College on Friday, Huntington dominated play to sweep the Quakers 9-0. The visiting Foresters gave up only 15 sets on the day to make quick work of Earlham.
Less than 24 hours later, HU returned to the friendly confines of Klopfenstein Courts where they handed Hanover College its third loss of the season with a 6-3 win over the Panthers.
The Foresters took a quick 2-1 lead in doubles before claiming victories at four of the top five spots in singles action to cruise to their second win in as many days.
With these two wins, HU enters the Crossroads League on a high note as the No. 6 seed. The Foresters finished with a 3-5 league record and will travel to No. 3 Taylor University on Tuesday for opening round play at 4:00 p.m.
