    The Hoosiers look to cool off red-hot Wake Forest as the Decons are coming off a pair of victories over top-25 squads. Wake Forest defeated #25 Texas A&M and #24 William and Mary on back-to-back days last weekend. Also, Wake's Sasha Kulikova is slotted No. 59 in the latest national singles rankings.

    Indiana opened their 2007-08 season at the Deacon Classic and captured five flight titles, including three singles and both doubles flights.

    The IU women's tennis program has earned the Adam Herbert Cup for the fall semester. It marks the third consecutive semester in which women's tennis has taken home the award. The Herbert Cup is awarded to the IU program with the highest overall team GPA.

    Sophomore Myriam Sopel got the nod to start at No. 6 singles last week at Kentucky, her first singles start of the season, and she delivered with a three-set winner. Sopel responded from an opening set loss to defeat Minnette Pienaar 3-6, 6-4, 1-0 (10-5).
