No. 19 Michigan blew out Marquette 7-0 on Saturday. But
yesterday, Michigan (10-1 overall, 1-0 Big Ten) wasn’t as
perfect, dropping a doubles match to Michigan State (5-7 overall,
0-1 Big Ten) yesterday.

Despite the lone blemish, the Wolverines won 6-1, winning every
singles match.

The Spartans have now lost three of their last four overall.

“We did a great job after not winning any doubles
points,” Michigan coach Bitsy Ritt said. “We were off
to a great start in singles.”

Despite their unusual performance in doubles, Michigan
maintained its high ranking by working twice as hard in singles. It
was Michigan’s second road match in three days.

The Wolverines continue the Big Ten season with matches against
Penn State on Saturday and Ohio State on Sunday at the Varsity
Tennis Center.
