    EVANSTON, Ill. - After squeaking out an emotional 4-3 victory at Wisconsin yesterday, it seemed that the Indiana women's tennis team had finally cured its one point ills. However, a 4-3 loss at the hands of Northwestern today changed all that. The Hoosiers are now 2-6 in matches decided by one point.

    Correne Stout, after an emotional upset victory over Illinois' Barbara Urbanska yesterday, suffered a straight set, 6-1, 6-3, loss to Northwestern's Katherine Nasser. Stout ran her record to 21-8 overall, 10-8 in duals, and 4-3 in the Big Ten.

    Winning their singles matches were Jessica Anderson at number five and Christy Sharp at number six. Anderson is now 7-0 in Big Ten play and Sharp is 3-0 in the conference.

    Once again, the Hoosiers took care of business on the doubles side of things. Although Kelly Blanch and Correne Stout lost at number one doubles, the teams of Zahra Ahamed and Megan McCarney at number two and Kelly Fitzgerald and Christy Sharp at number three triumphed to earn the doubles point. McCarney and Ahamed upped their conference mark to 5-0 and Fitzgerald and Sharp took theirs to 2-0.

    The Hoosiers now stand at 10-8 overall and 4-3 in the Big Ten. IU will next play host to Illinois on Saturday, April 18, and Purdue on Sunday, April 19.
