Women's Tennis Falls to Northwestern

MIAMI – Earning a doubles point against one of the top six teams in the nation was the highlight of the DePaul women’s tennis team’s first outdoor match of the season a 6-1 loss at Northwestern.


“We played well for first match outside this season” head coach Mark Ardizzone said. “Getting the doubles point was great against a top six team in the country. 


“Karen Falduto and Natalie Matko have been playing great doubles as of late and adding Stephanie Matko back from injury in the mix really helps us a lot.” Ardizzone said.
