MARION, Ind. -- Indiana Wesleyan University women’s tennis had little trouble in dispatching Goshen (Ind.) on Tuesday with a 9-0 victory at the Sutter Tennis Center.
The Wildcats improve to 2-0 on the season and 1-0 in the Crossroads League. It was the first match of the season for the Maple Leafs.
Goshen was unable to gain any traction in doubles and won just two games in the three doubles matches. Kristen Futrell and Rachel Bottorff claimed an 8-0 win in No. 2-doubles while the No. 1-doubles team of Katie Wilson and Kim Mella plus the No. 3-doubles team of Courtney Siepman and Ellen Hornett both won by scores of 8-1.
Indiana Wesleyan continued the dominance in singles with all six Wildcats taking wins by straight sets, including five matches where Wildcats lost one or fewer games combined.
Wilson had the toughest contest in the No. 1-singles position but still came out on top 6-2, 7-5. Bottorff at No. 2-singles and Mella at No. 4-singles each won by 6-0, 6-0 margins. Heiniger won No. 3-singles 6-0, 6-1, Futrell earned the No. 5-singles points 6-0, 6-1, and Gabby D’Aniello won No. 6-singles 6-1, 6-0.
