LAKEVILLE, Minn. – The No. 39-ranked Carleton College women’s tennis team improved to 2-0 on the season with a sweep of Hamline University. Zoe Park (So./Lake Forest, Ill./Lake Forest) completed the sweep in dramatic fashion, overcoming four match points to win in a super tiebreaker at first singles.

Carleton (2-0, 2-0 MIAC) quickly swept the three doubles matches, dropping a combined three games. The Knights were even more successful in claiming victories in spots two through five of the singles lineup.

Danielle Vasiliev (Sr./Lincolnshire, Ill./Stevenson), Alana Danieu (Sr./East Aurora, N.Y./East Aurora), and Elizabeth Yim (Fy./Orange, Calif./Villa Park) prevailed 6-0, 6-0 at the second, fourth, and six slots. Meanwhile, Kristina Conrad (Jr./Plymouth, Minn./Robbinsdale Armstrong) and Madeline Prins (So./Pacific Palisades, Calif./Palisades Charter) both lost only one game in notching their triumphs at the third and fifth spots, respectively.

Park dropped the opening set, 4-6, but battled back and took the second set, 7-6. In the super breaker, she eventually secured a 12-10 result to put a ribbon on the evening’s completion. All told, Park saved four match points en route to her victory.

For their next match, the Knights will host Augustana (S.D) University, a NCAA Division II program, on Friday, Feb. 16. That 4 p.m. contest will be held at Lifetime Fitness in Lakeville, Minn.
