FULLERTON, Calif. - DePaul women's tennis dominated singles competition, winning all six of its matches en route to a 10th win in dual match play on Tuesday, March 26 against Cal State Fullerton at the Titan Courts.

The Blue Demons snapped a five-match losing streak with the triumph and improved to 10-7 overall, while the Titans went to 10-11 with the setback.

Playing outdoors for the first time this season, DePaul also set another first by winning without taking the doubles point. The Blue Demons are now 1-7 when dropping the point and are undefeated (9-0) when taking it.

Sophomore Patricia Fargas and freshman Ana Vladutu teamed up for DePaul's lone doubles win with an 8-3 decision against Tiffany Mai and Monica Rodriguez.

After splitting up for singles, however, the Blue Demons found their groove and took all six points to claim their first win since February 23.

Fargas finished first at the third position, where she handled Cal State Fullerton's Monica Rodriguez in straight sets, 6-1, 6-1, to even the match.

Next, freshman Zaina Sufi got her 15th win of the year at sixth singles and put DePaul in the lead with a 6-1, 6-3 defeat of the Titans' Malorie de la Cruz.

Another freshman, Jarret Fisher, brought back the next Blue Demon point, taking down Rebekkah Ermac by a score of 6-1, 6-4. At the fourth position, junior captain Kelsey Lawson clinched the match posting an identical 6-1, 6-4 win versus Megan Sandford.

DePaul then added two more points at the top two positions in the order, as Vladutu stepped up to the second spot and won her fourth straight match over Mai, 6-4, 6-4.

Freshman Mateau Cutura closed out the scoring for DePaul with a close one at first singles, securing her seventh straight win against Morgan McIntosh, 6-2, 2-6, 10-4.

After wrapping up spring break, the Blue Demons will be in action next in Orlando, Fla. when they face the University of Central Florida at 2:00 p.m. CT on Saturday, April 6.
