    ANN ARBOR, Mich. - The Hoosier women's tennis team fell on Saturday afternoon to No. 5 Michigan, 6-1. Indiana's point was earned with Evgeniya Vertesheva picking up a singles win.

    Vertesheva defeated No. 63 Sam Critser of Michigan playing in the No. 2 singles match. It marked Vertesheva's first win over a ranked opponent on the season as she dominated in straight sets, 6-1, 6-1.

    "Michigan is very good with ranking No. 5 in the nation," Head Coach Lin Loring said. "We stayed with them early in the doubles and were up at 1 and 2. We also competed well at several positions in singles"
