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.

The win marked DePaul's ninth straight; the Blue Demons (10-1) haven't lost since Jan. 26 (No. 7 Texas A&M). Georgetown dropped to 1-7 with the loss.

DePaul began the day with two wins in doubles play to take a 1-0 lead. Jasmin Kling and Kelsey Lawson downed Madeline Jaeger and Kelly Comolli, 8-5, in the No. 2 match and Rebeca Mitrea and Zaina Sufi defeated Sophia Barnard and Sophie Panarese in the No. 3 match, 8-3.

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.

Friday's win over Georgetown also gave DePaul its third consecutive 7-0 victory. The Blue Demons have out-scored their opponents 27-1 in their last four matches.

Tomorrow, the Blue Demons shoot for wins No. 11 and 12 as they take on Navy at 8 a.m. and Seton Hall at 1 p.m. Both matches will be played in Annapolis, Md.
