MINNEAPOLIS – The Carleton College women’s tennis team won its fourth straight, claiming an 8-1 victory over St. Catherine University. Four Knights secured victories in both singles and doubles.

Carleton (5-1, 3-0 MIAC) dominated in sweeping the three doubles matches. The regionally-ranked tandem of Kristina Conrad (Sr./Plymouth, Minn./Robbinsdale Armstrong) and Madeline Prins (Jr./Pacific Palisades, Calif./Palisades Charter) registered an 8-2 triumph, while the Knights’ other pairings— Faith Yim (So./Orange, Calif./Villa Park) with Jeanny Zhang (Fy./Guangzhou, China/Dwight School) and Sonya Romanenko (Fy./San Diego, Calif./Rancho Bernardo) with Yelena Hallman (Fy./Hopkins, Minn./Hopkins)—notched identical 8-1 victories.

Carleton’s five singles victories all came in straight sets, with Elizabeth Yim (So./Orange, Calif./Villa Park) leading the charge as she cruised to a 6-0, 6-0 result. Romanenko, Zhang, Conrad, and Prins also tallied wins during singles action.

The Knights will take a break from action to prepare for and then take winter term final exams. Carleton returns to the court for its annual Spring Break trip. The team will play four matches on Hilton Head Island, S.C. from March 25-28.
