Forester women's tennis gets 1st sweep of season

Article provided by Huntington University

The Forester women’s tennis team logged their first sweep of the season with a 9-0 win over Mount Vernon on Monday afternoon at Lakewood Racquet Club. Rain forced the match to be moved indoors and the adjustment didn’t faze HU as they gave up just 12 games on the day.

With this win, Huntington improves to 4-1 overall, 3-1 in league play. Next up for Ferguson’s crew is ITA Regionals hosted by Indiana Wesleyan September 13-15.
