Women’s tennis efficiently defeated Youngstown State and Southern Utah Feb. 11 at the Fertitta Tennis Complex.

The YSU match ended swiftly with a final score of 4-0, and following the same pattern, the ladies defeated SUU with a shutout victory of 7-0.

Cristina Moroi was sure they were going to beat them and this attitude showed on court as women’s tennis executed a double header.

It was evident women’s tennis came to play, especially during their YSU match. Once doubles sufficiently swept their opponents, singles entered the court with the same spirit.

Winning all six matches without much opposition, women’s tennis entered SUU’s match with promise.

Stormy weather accompanied the Rebels as they began their match against SUU. Doubles was on the top of their game, receiving little competition from their adversaries. Singles did just as well as doubles, but with a little push-back. First seed Aiwen Zhu clinched her match 6-0, 7-5, struggling, but ultimately overcoming in the second set.

With their season record resting at 6-1, the Rebels look forward to their next match against Arizona State on Feb. 19. They are hoping to add to their 4-win streak and further their ITA Kickoff Weekend record.
