Last weekend Women's Tennis had only a slim victory over Duquesne to speak of. Today they hit the holiday perfect on President's Day weekend, as they got a second consecutive 7-0 win, this time over regional rival Niagara.
Even if you were expecting a win from the Bulls - and you should have been - this one came quickly and decisively. The doubles pairings all won without issue, though I'm not sure when the breaks came, and the singles lineup was hyper-efficient not only in winning all six matches in straight sets, but in winning each set by 6-2 margins or worse.
Really the only surprise in this one was a mild lineup shift from Coach Maines, as Laura Holterbosch moved up to #3 singles, while Margarita Kotok moved down to #4. Given how easily UB has cut through everyone so far this season, I assume the decision was based on something in practice or otherwise.
There's not a whole lot more to say about a dominating victory. Next weekend will be a tougher test for the Bulls, who hit the road for matches at West Virginia and Pittsburgh. UB has competed at West Virginia each of the last two falls, so we've got a bit of a barometer there.
