Caroline Margraf (L) and Courtney Steiner (R) went 3-0 in doubles action.

Sophomore Caroline Margraf went a perfect 6-0 to pace the Denison women's tennis team at the 2011 Oberlin Fall Invitational this past weekend in Oberlin, Ohio.

Margraf won all three of her singles matches and teamed with senior Courtney Steiner to sweep doubles action.  The sophomore opened the invitational with a straight-set win over Case Western's Kathleen Evers (6-1, 6-4).  Margraf went on to defeat Elyse Schmitt of Allegheny (6-2, 6-2) on Saturday, and Baldwin-Wallace's Jenny Greene (6-3, 6-3) on Sunday.

In doubles, Margraf and Steiner won an 8-5 decision over B-W's Morgan Baker and Rebecca Mittler on Friday.  On Saturday, the DU duo picked up a pair of 9-7 wins over OWU's Becky Simon and Jordan Leslie, and Maria Ciccolini and Cassie Simmelink of John Carroll.

Senior Kate Westenberger also had a strong showing with a combined 4-2 mark in singles and doubles play.  Westenberger won in straight-sets on Friday and Saturday defeating Oberlin's Grace Porter (6-0, 6-4) and Case Western's Kara Richardson (6-4, 6-2).  The senior's lone setback came in her final singles match against Ann Morris of Washington & Lee.

Westenberger also went 2-1 in doubles competition alongside first-year Heather Abzug.  The Big Red tandem defeated a pair of Ohio Northern teams (8-2 and 8-4), and dropped an 8-5 decision to Allegheny.

DU returns to competition at the ITA Regional Tournament hosted by Kalamazoo College.  The four-day tournament begins on Sept. 29.
