HUNTINGTON, Ind. (Box Score) -- The Indiana Wesleyan University women's tennis fall win streak reached legendary status on Saturday at Huntington (Ind.) University.


The Wildcats easily defeated the Foresters 9-0 to extend the winning streak to 200 in a row during the fall season. The streak dates back all the way to 1995.

In 1995, the US national average for a gallon of regular gasoline was $1.15, Bill Clinton was President, O.J. Simpson was found innocent, and the Oklahoma City Bombing took place.

Saturday didn't supply much for the dramatics as Indiana Wesleyan quickly cut down Huntington.

The junior No. 1-doubles team of Andrea Meyering and Lauren Wilson won 8-1, sophomores Rachael Heiniger and Kristen Futrell won No. 2-doubles 8-2 and senior Aubrey Lohser teamed with freshman Kim Mella for an 8-2 victory in No. 3-doubles.

After compiling a 3-0 lead after doubles, Indiana Wesleyan finished off Huntington with straight set wins in all six singles competitions.

Heiniger won 6-4, 6-1 in the top singles match while Meyering won her first set 6-0 before her competitor retired due to injury. Wilson took a 6-2, 6-3 win in No. 3-singles and Futrell cruised to a 6-0, 6-0 victory in No. 4 play. Freshman Diane Jones captured a 6-2, 6-0 win in No. 5-singles and Mella completed the sweep with a 6-0, 6-1 win in No. 6-singles.

Indiana Wesleyan improves to 5-0 this season and ups its record to 3-0 in the Mid-Central College Conference.
