#1 singles player Ivy Garner, sophomore Olivia Ward, senior Kate Millner and sophomore Brianna Cellini all earned 6-0, 6-0 wins as the Red Wolves defeated the Panthers 9-0 at Panther Tennis Courts. At #4 singles, Nora Sauers won her match 6-1, 6-2, while Maddy Werner captured the most competitive battle of the day, earning a 6-3, 6-2 victory.

Red Wolves Coach Lennie Corbett played some reserves in doubles, pairing Hannah Johnson with Cellini at #2 for an 8-2 victory. Rachel Quade played her first match of the year, teaming with Natalie Marochak for an 8-3 win at #3 doubles. Garner and Ward swept #1 doubles 8-0 to make quick work of the Panthers, who were coming off its first win of the season against Hillside the previous Wednesday.
