PERRYSBURG, Ohio -- Miami won its 20th straight Mid-American Conference regular-season tennis match Friday, earning a 5-2 victory over Bowling Green at the Perrysburg Tennis Center. The RedHawks (12-5, 3-0) took the doubles point, then won four of six during singles play.
Doubles play started with a Miami win at No. 2 as Megan Martzolf and Stephanie Danesis rebounded from a loss on their last outing to post an 8-6 victory, putting Miami up 1-0.
The RedHawks quickly added to their lead. Cara Wald dropped just two games in a 6-2, 6-0 win at No. 6, then Anastasia Dracheva followed by winning 6-2, 6-1 at No. 2. Miami clinched the win when Nimisha Mohan cruised to a 6-4, 6-0 victory at No. 5.
Martzolf also triumphed in singles, taking a 7-5, 7-5 decision, but Honiball and Danesis both fell victim to make the final score 5-2.
Miami continues its road trip tomorrow with a clash against Western Michigan in a rematch of the last two MAC Championship matches. The RedHawks and Broncos have combined to win the last six regular-seaosn league titles.
