The 17th-ranked Denison women's tennis team picked up a key 8-1 victory over rival Kenyon College on Wednesday in Gambier, Ohio.

The Big Red continued its recent dominance in doubles play.  The No. 1 doubles team of Sarah Short and Alex Marcell doubled up Amy Schlessman and Lydia Winkler for their fifth-consecutive win and 10th overall.

At the second flight, Kate Westenberger and Heather Abzug also won their fifth straight following an 8-0 decision over Carly Bond and Anna Becker.  DU completed the sweep when Courtney Steiner and Lilianna Broussalian posted an 8-1 win at the third doubles flight.  The Denison duo captured their seventh-straight victory.

In addition to their success in doubles play, Short and Marcell have both found their grove in singles action.  Short picked up her sixth-consecutive win at the first flight following a straight-set win over Schlessman, while Marcell notched a 6-2, 6-2 win over Amanda Polster.  With the win, Marcell improved to 7-2 at second singles.  Broussalian, Westernberger and Abzug all logged straight-set decisions at third through fifth singles.

Denison improves to 5-6 overall, while the Ladies fall to 6-7.  DU returns to action on Friday at the Midwest Invitational in Madison, Wis.  The Big Red opens play against Wisconsin-Whitewater at 12:30 p.m.
