The Northwestern University Women's Tennis Team defeated Minnesota Sunday 4-2.
The Cats won 3 of the 5 Singles matches played to conclusion, and the Doubles point to clinch their fifth consecutive Big 10 Championship. The win also means Head Women's Tennis Coach Claire Pollard has never lost a Big 10 Title while at Northwestern.

The string should continue, all of the players in this tournament were underclassmen. #5 Singles Ruth Barnes and #6 Stacey Kokx are Juniors, #4 Andrea Yung is a sophomore. #1 Cristelle Grier and #3 Jamie Peisel are freshmen.

The Court Cats next have their eyes on the NCAAs. The regionals start May 1st.
