The Nebraska women’s tennis team notched another win this Saturday with a strong 6-1 victory over the Colorado State Rams at the Nebraska Tennis Center. The No. 26 Huskers (7-1) swept doubles action before adding victories in five of six singles matches to seal their win.

The day started at noon with doubles action, where Jennifer Holmberg and Patricia Veresova first prevailed with a dominant 8-1 victory over Lauren Pick and Kaitlin Wooldride at the No. 3 position. The Huskers then clinched the doubles point with a win in No. 2 doubles, where Frederike Putthoff and Janine Weinreich put away Lauren Mulhern and Kaley Schultz, 8-3. The Big Red wrapped up the sweep with a final victory in No 1 doubles, which saw Madeleine Geibert and Stefanie Weinstein defeat Caitlin Fluegge and Tori Arneson, 8-4.

The Huskers then took the court in singles play, where they rattled off four quick victories to wrap up their victory. Janine Weinreich was first to finish for NU, toppling Kaley Schutlz, 6-0, 6-1 at the No. 5 position. Stefanie Weinstein posted the next win for the Huskers, defeating Lauren Mulhern, 6-3, 6-1 in No. 3 singles. Madeleine Geibert finished quickly thereafter, sealing her 6-2, 6-2 win in No. 1 singles over Caitlin Fluegge and giving Nebraska their fourth overall point to clinch the match. Patricia Veresova came in next, recording a 6-1, 6-0 victory over Tori Arneson at the No. 2 spot.

The final two matches were closer for the Huskers, resulting in a 1-1 split for the Big Red. The Huskers’ Maike Zeppernick and Colorado State’s Melissa Hulzinger ground out a tough first set in No. 6 singles that saw Zeppernick prevail, 7-5. Zeppernick then took her momentum into the next set and clinched the win, 6-0.
