Jacks storm past St. Cloud State...
The South Dakota State women's tennis team made quick work of St. Cloud State in its second win of the weekend...
One day after knocking off North Dakota, a team that had beaten the Jacks in the fall, SDSU pushed its record over .500 with a convincing 9-0 win over St. Cloud State on Saturday.
The Jacks swept the doubles competition, in which each match counted as one point. Jenny Blackburne and Brooke Henry pulled out a tight 8-6 win at No. 1, while Bryna Nasenbeny and Megan McDougall also won a hard fought match 9-7 at No. 2. The No. 3 match was never in doubt, as Natalia Medina and Bethany Goeden cruised to an 8-0 win.
In singles it was more of the same, as no Jackrabbit gave up more than four games in a match en route to six wins and a shutout meet score.
Anna Botzet entered the singles lineup at No. 6 and posted a convincing 6-1, 6-0 victory to match McDougall at No. 4 and Medina at No. 5. Nasenbeny, Blackburne and Henry were winners at No. 1, 2 and 3, respectively.
SDSU improved to 3-2 on the season with the win.
Complete results from yesterday's meet available below.
Next up the Jacks take a two-week break from action before journeying to the state of Florida for five meets in five days. SDSU opens play against Sacred Heart in Orlando, Fla., on March 5 at Noon.
