WINONA, Minn. – The No. 35-ranked Carleton College women’s tennis team improved to 6-0 in conference action and 12-2 overall after notching an 8-1 victory at Saint Mary’s University.

Carleton swept doubles with the pairing of Sonya Romanenko (Fy./San Diego, Calif./Rancho Bernardo) and Elizabeth Yim (So./Orange, Calif./Villa Park) blitzing their opponents for an 8-0 result. The duo of Kristina Conrad (Sr./Plymouth, Minn./Robbinsdale Armstrong) and Madeline Prins (Jr./Pacific Palisades, Calif./Palisades Charter) posted an 8-2 result at first doubles, their team-best 10th dual match victory this season. Faith Yim (So./Orange, Calif./Villa Park) and Jeanny Zhang (Fy./Guangzhou, China/Dwight School) won for the eighth time in 10 tries, notching an 8-3 decision.

In singles, Carleton claimed the first five matches to finish, each of them via straight-set results.

Romanenko fresh off climbing to No. 8 in the Central Region singles rankings, secured a 6-3, 6-4 result for her 11th consecutive triumph. Zhang improved to 11-1 on the year as she cruised to a 6-1, 6-1 outcome at the second slot. Conrad added a 6-2, 6-2 victory, and Prins pushed her win streak to 12 with a 6-0, 6-1 triumph. With her 6-3, 6-1 result, Faith Yim improved to 6-1 after moving into the singles starting lineup.

The lone Cardinals’ (13-6, 6-4 MIAC) team point came via an injury retirement with the Knights already leading 8-0.

Carleton hosts No. 38-ranked Bethel University at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, April 14. That match will be held at Lifetime Fitness in Lakeville, Minn.
