DES MOINES, Iowa - The Drake women's tennis team captured wins in all nine matches en route to collecting a 7-0 triumph over Nebraska Omaha on Sunday (March 3) at the Roger Knapp Tennis Center.

The Bulldogs captured the only point they needed in the affair on the strength of a sweep of the doubles competition.

Clinching the deciding tally at the No. 3 doubles position was the tandem of sophomore Amanda Dick (Kenosha, Wis.) and freshman Evy Van Genechten (Antwerp, Belgium), who bettered Rachel Pierson and Lindsay Weideman, 8-3.

Sophomore Nell Boyd (Arlington Heights, Ill.) and freshman Maddie Johnson (Onalaska, Wis.) extended Drake's lead to 3-0 with victories to open singles action.

Boyd netted a 6-2, 6-0 decision past Weideman at No. 4, before Johnson swung past Molly Matricardi at No. 2, 6-0, 6-1.

In her first singles competition of the spring campaign, freshman Mariel Ante (Riverside, Calif.) registered the match-clinching point with a 6-0, 6-3 win versus Emily Pierson at No. 3.

The Bulldogs also received victories at the Nos. 1, 5 and 6 slots, respectively, courtesy of Van Genechten, freshman Jordan Eggleston (LaQuinta, Calif.) and Dick.

Up next for Drake is an in-state showdown at Iowa State on Friday (March 8).  Match time is slated for 6:00 p.m.
