The Northwestern University women’s tennis team cruised to a 7-0 win over the University of Illinois-Chicago to open the winter/spring dual-match season on Friday night at Combe Tennis Center in Evanston.
“I thought it was a good start,” head coach Claire Pollard said. “We have lots of things to work through. I thought our opposition were very crafty and unpredictable. Looking ahead to Sunday, we’re going to play a team that’s really crafty too, so I think it was good for us.”
Coming off a Big Ten regular season championship and a Round of 16 appearance in the NCAA tournament last season, the Wildcats again have lofty expectations for the season ahead.
