CHICAGO The No. 59 DePaul women’s tennis team cruised to a 7-0 BIG EAST Conference victory over Cincinnati on Saturday. All five Blue Demon seniors posted wins as DePaul celebrated Senior Day at Lakeshore Athletic Club.
The top doubles match saw seniors Beatrix Csordas and Gergana Ganeva roll to an 8-3 victory over Alizee Paradis and Jenny Rowen. Senior Clare Chmiel teamed up with junior Dunja Antunovic in the No. 2 doubles match, where the DePaul pair knocked off Jenn Keiner and Liz Young, 8-3.
Antunovic improved her No. 1 singles record to 10-7 with a 6-2, 6-2 victory over Paradis in the top match. Ganeva defeated Keiner, 6-2, 6-0, at No. 2 singles, while Csordas posted a 6-2, 6-1 win over Young in the No. 3 match.
