HUNTINGTON, Ind. – Hampered by inclement weather, the HU women’s tennis team played their one and only match of the spring Tuesday afternoon at Klopfenstein Courts, dominating IU East 6-1.

After picking up wins at No. 1 and No. 2 doubles, the Foresters made quick work of the Red Wolves in singles action by giving up only nine games at the first four spots.

Huntington wraps up the year with an overall record of 7-9.
