CHICAGO - Matea Cutura delivered one of the biggest singles wins in school history as the DePaul women's team got off to a great start at the 2012 Wildcat Invitational on Friday at the Vandy Christie and Combe Tennis Centers on the campus of Northwestern.

Cutura, who improved to 5-0 on the fall with a pair of wins, defeated 12th ranked Kate Turvey of Northwestern in straight sets, 6-1, 6-3, to claim a win over the highest ranked opponent in school history.

On the other courts, the Blue Demons had similar levels of success as six different players went undefeated on the day. Overall, the team was 16-5 in singles play and 4-1 in doubles. Two singles draws will finish in all-DePaul finals on Sunday.

In the purple draw, Jasmin Kling picked up her first wins of the fall and advanced to face Cutura. In the red draw, Ana Vladutu went 3-0 on the day and advanced to face teammate Rebeca Mitrea. Vladutu did not drop a set and played an extra match after UIC's Natalia Kuvakina retired from their second round match.

Playing in the green draw, freshman Jarret Fisher ran her fall record to 8-0 with a pair of wins while Kelsey Lawson also went 2-0 in the blue draw.

In doubles play, Patricia Fargas and Kling improved to 3-1 this fall with an 8-3 win over Minnesota's Paula Rincon-Otero and Natallia Pintusava. Vladutu and Zaina Sufi also teamed up to take down Northern Iowa's Phoebe Walker and Krissy Lankelma.
