Stephanie Villajuan came back in her singles match after losing the first set, 5-7, to win the next two sets, 6-4 and 10-6, to seal the clean sweep of Miami of Ohio.
Earlier in the day, the women’s team faced Southern Illinois University. The Cardinals claimed victory with a score of 6-1. Starting off hot, the doubles teams swept all three matches to seal the point right off the bat. The doubles sweep included an upset victory in the No. 1 doubles match where Manuela Velasquez and Julia Fellerhoff upset the No. 36 ranked team, Melanie Delsart and Anastacia Simons, with a score of 8-3.
