HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. – The No. 35-ranked Carleton College women’s tennis program continued its winning ways with an 8-1 triumph over Oberlin College, a regionally-ranked squad. Jeanny Zhang (Fy./Guangzhou, China/Dwight School), Kristina Conrad (Sr./Plymouth, Minn./Robbinsdale Armstrong), Madeline Prins (Jr./Pacific Palisades, Calif./Palisades Charter), and Faith Yim (So./Orange, Calif./Villa Park) each won in both singles and doubles as the Knights (8-1) claimed their seventh consecutive victory.

Conrad and Prins remained undefeated against Division III opponents in 2019 in both solo and tandem play. The nationally-ranked duo combined on an 8-5 victory in doubles before Prins cruised to a 6-0, 6-2 singles win and Conrad prevailed in her singles match during a super tiebreaker 6-2, 3-6, 1-0 (10-8).

Zhang bounced back after absorbing her first collegiate losses to D-III opponents the day prior. This time around she paired with Yim on an 8-5 doubles win at second doubles and posted a 6-2, 6-1 victory atop the singles lineup. Yim kept her singles ledger unblemished thanks to a 6-4, 6-4 result.

Sonya Romanenko (Fy./San Diego, Calif./Rancho Bernardo) and Elizabeth Yim (So./Orange, Calif./Villa Park) registered their third doubles triumph in as many days, breezing to an 8-2 win. Molly Smith (So./Northfield, Minn./Northfield) added a 6-0, 6-2 singles victory to complete the score.
