NEW HAVEN, Conn. — The No. 37 nationally-ranked Yale women’s tennis team won all six singles matches in straight sets and claimed victory in all three doubles matches en route to a convincing 7-0 sweep of Quinnipiac on Friday afternoon at the Cullman-Heyman Tennis Center in New Haven, Conn. The Bulldogs improve to 11-4 with the impressive win while the visiting Bobcats fall to 5-3.

Vicky Brook, Jessica Rhee, Elizabeth Epstein, Stevi Petrelli, Lindsay Clark and Sarah Lederhandler all swept through their singles matches for Yale. The doubles teams of Brook/Rhee, Clark/Epstein and Petrelli/Silia DeFilippis also earned wins for the Bulldogs.

Friday’s match served as Yale’s final tune-up for the 2010 Ivy League season, as Princeton and Penn will visit the Elm City in two weeks. The Bulldogs play host to the Tigers on April 2 at 2:00 p.m., while the Quakers come to the Cullman-Heyman Tennis Center on April 3 at noon.
