Women's Tennis: VU Shuts Out No. 34 Florida State

The No. 4 Vanderbilt women's tennis team concluded its first road trip of the season in strong fashion, defeating No. 34 Florida State 7-0 Sunday in Tallahassee. For the Commodores (7-0), it was their third win of the year against a ranked opponent.

The Commodores opened a 1-0 lead early when they swept the doubles
competition. It was the sixth time in their seven matches this year
that they have swept the doubles play. The Commodores then proceeded
to sweep all six singles matches to complete the 7-0 win. Junior
Sarah Riske (McMurray, Pa.) led the Commodores with her straight set
win at No. 1. Senior Jenny Miller (Savannah, Ga.) kept her record
perfect this spring with her straight set win at No. 2. Freshmen
Katie Blaszak (Fairfax, Va.) and Annie Menees (St. Louis, Mo.) also
earned straight set wins for the Commodores at No. 3 and No. 6.

Vanderbilt returns home this weekend as they host a pair of ranked
foes at the Currey Tennis Center. On Friday the Commodores host No.
42 Iowa at 2:30 before hosting No. 41 Tulane at noon on Sunday.
