Panthers Stay Perfect With Win Over Penguins
April 12, 2014
Youngstown, Ohio - The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee tennis team continued its outstanding Saturday night by knocking off Youngstown State, 4-3, and moving to a league-best 6-0 for the first time in program history.
Milwaukee improves to 12-7 overall, already equaling last year's win total with two regular-season matches left on the schedule. The six Horizon-League victories also ties a program record for most in one season.
As they have done seemingly all season, the Panthers started the match off by winning the doubles point. Alysa Straub and Diana Tokar cruised to an 8-1 win at the two spot, while Christina Colarossi and Kristin Kurer earned a hard-fought 8-6 win in the third spot to claim the point.
Tokar then turned around for an outstanding performance in the top singles spot, battling to a 7-5, 6-4 win. That marks her 10th win this spring season, all in the No. 1 spot.
Colarossi also captured a well-deserved victory, taking the fourth spot 6-4, 7-5. Kurer then sealed the win for UWM by handily adding to her outstanding career-win total with a 6-1, 6-0 win in the sixth spot.
The Panthers have a quick turnaround, heading to Cleveland State for a 10 a.m. match Sunday morning.
