WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The 45th-ranked DePaul women's tennis team began its three-match trip on the east coast with a convincing 7-0 victory over Georgetown on Friday afternoon.

In singles play, DePaul swept all six matches, starting with Patricia Fargas' dominating 6-0, 6-0 triumph over Jaeger in the No. 1 match. Then, Sufi improved to 10-0 in dual play with a 6-1, 6-0 win in her No. 5 match against Panarese and Lawson clinched the match thanks to a 6-3, 6-4 win over Comolli in No. 4 singles.
The remaining singles matches featured a Kling win at No. 3 over Barnard (6-2, 6-2), a Mitrea victory at No. 6 over Madeline Foley (6-1, 6-0) and a three-set win by Ana Vladutu over Victoire Saperstein (6-4, 4-6, 6-3) in the No. 2 match.
