LAKEVILLE, Minn. – The Carleton College women’s tennis team cruised to a 9-0 triumph over Hamline University in the MIAC opener for both programs. Katherine Greenberg (So./St. Louis, Mo./Clayton) was one of five Knights to win at both singles and doubles.

Carleton (2-0, 1-0 MIAC) looked worthy of its No. 21 national ranking as the Knights dominated up and down the lineup. The squad dropped only one game in sweeping the doubles matches, and in singles Carleton dropped a grand total of six games in posting six straight-set victories.

Kathryn Schmidt (Sr./Hopkins, Minn./Hopkins) and Bridget Doyle (Jr./Mendota Heights, Minn./Visitation) posted a shutout at first doubles, then each took care of business atop the singles lineup.

Anne Lombardi (So./Hinsdale, Ill./Hinsdale Central) and Molly Hemes (So./Green Bay, Wis./Preble) were equally successful at second doubles and third/fourth singles.

Greenberg and Erin Wilson (So./Novato, Calif./Marin Academy) blanked their opponents, 8-0, at third doubles, then Greenberg added the win at fifth doubles by a 6-1, 6-1 margin.

Lauren Salberg (Fy./Longview, Wash./Mark Morris) made her season debut at sixth singles and shutout the opposition, 6-0, 6-0.

Carleton travels to Winona, Minn. on Saturday, Feb. 11 for a 3:30 p.m. match against Saint Mary’s University.
