Women's Tennis Dominates Drake, 6-1
Feb. 24, 2003
Chicago, Ill. - The UIC women's tennis team is already heating up, and the thermometers are still hovering around the freezing mark.
After a 6-1 drubbing of Drake on Sunday, it could be scary to see what the Flames will do once they get outdoors when the temperature is a bit toastier.
"This was a very solid win for us," said head coach Shannon Tully. "Everyone is stepping for us right now, and I am very impressed with the effort this team is giving everyday."
UIC (7-5) took five of six singles matches, and at that point, Drake defaulted the doubles point to give the Flames the 6-1 outcome.
Nicole Derouin continued her torrid pace, defeating Annali de Bruyn, 6-3, 6-4 in the No.1 singles match.
The Flames return to action on Sunday, March 2, when they host Horizon League foe Wright State at 8:30 a.m. at the Hyde Park Tennis Club.
