LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- The 25th-ranked Denison women's tennis team posted their second-consecutive shutout victory with a 9-0 decision over Occidental on Monday night.

The Big Red kicked off the match with a convincing sweep in doubles competition. DU posted two 8-1 victories at first and second doubles, while collecting an 8-2 win at the third flight. Sophomores Lauren Hawley and Emma Alsup picked up their third-straight win at the top flight, while Ashley Hammons and Megan Hickey snapped a two-match skid with a victory at No. 2 doubles. At third doubles, Charlotte Purnode and Olivia Underwood improved to 5-1 on the year.

In singles play, Hawley, Purnode and Carol Vitellas posted 6-0, 6-0 wins at the first, fifth and sixth flights, respectively. Alsup and Hammons both won via 6-1, 6-1 scores at second and fourth singles, while Hickey picked up a 6-0, 6-1 victory at the third flight.

With the win, the Big Red improves to 2-4 overall while the Tigers fall to 1-5 on the year. Denison returns to action on Wednesday (March 15) when they travel to Redlands for a 6 p.m. match.
