NOT PLAYING LIKE A FRESHMAN
True freshman Megan Matter has jumped immediately into the starting line-up after joining the Hoosiers at the start of the spring semester.

The Leawood, Kan., native has posted records of 6-1 and 6-2 in singles and doubles, respectively. She has played No. 3 doubles in every match and No. 6 singles in all but one.
GETTING SIGGY WITH IT
Senior captain Sigrid Fischer is off to a great start of the spring season, winning seven singles matches already compared to just one defeat. In addition, all seven victories came in straight sets as Fischer has won 14 of 16 sets thus far. She has also performed well on the doubles court, pairing with Myriam Sopel to win four of their last six matches together at No. 2 doubles.
