    Hoosier netters down Ohio State

    Bloomington, IN--It wasn't pretty, but the Indiana women's tennis team clinched it's third Big Ten victory of the season today with a 5-2 win over the Ohio State Buckeyes. The win ups the Hoosiers mark to 9-6 overall and 3-2 in the Big Ten.

    Indiana clinched the doubles point after Megan McCarney and Zahra Ahamed hung on to defeat a pesky Ohio State number two team 9-7. Kelly Fitzgerald and Becky Wallihan also won for the Hoosiers, 8-4, at the three spot.

    In singles, the Hoosiers won four of the five matches after Stout defaulted at the number one spot. Ahamed won a tough match, 7-5,6-3 at number 3 while McCarney, Jessica Anderson, and Ana Ceretto breezed to straight set victories. Anderson picked up her 20th win of the season in the 6-3,6-1 decision. Freshman Kelly Blanch lost for only the fourth time this season, dropping a 5-7,6-3,6-1 decision to Briana Harris at the number two spot.

    "It was nice to get a Big Ten win, but our play was dissapointing," said head coach Lin Loring. "We are going to have to play better tommorow if we want to beat Kentucky."

    The Hoosiers are back in action tommorow morning as they square off against border rival Kentucky. Match time is slated for 10:00 and play will begin with the doubles on the Indiana Outdoor Varsity Courts, weather permitting.
