WASHINGTON, DC – The University of the District of Columbia women's tennis team continued its dominance as the Firebirds steamrolled East Coast Conference foe, Daemen College, 7-0 on Saturday afternoon at Southeast Tennis & Learning Center for their 5th straight win.

UDC (6-1, 3-1 ECC) earned victories at No. 1 and 2 doubles and No. 1-4 singles, and picked up wins by default at No. 3 doubles and No. 5-6 singles due to an insufficient lineup for the Wildcats.

In doubles play, head coach Dickie Mahaffey tried out a different duo at No. 2 today, pairing junior Estefania Castrillon and freshman Joanna Skrzypczynska. Their first ever doubles match pairing was a resounding success, as they earned a 6-0 victory.  

Meanwhile, the Firebirds' No. 1 pair of Simoné Pärn and Marija Milic remained unbeaten in dual match play at 7-0 this season with a 6-2 victory.

Skrzypczynska kicked off singles play with a 6-0, 6-0 result over Daemen's Courtney Otis at No. 3 singles as she improved to 6-1 in dual matches (3-1 vs. ECC). She was followed by senior Anastasia Khomyachenko's, 6-0, 6-0 win at No. 4.

Next, was Pärn earning a 6-2, 6-1 win at No. 1 vs. Christina Stasiuk and improving to 7-0 in dual match play (4-0 ECC). Milic wrapped up the day with a 6-2, 6-3 win at No. 2 vs. Jessica Robins as she improved to 6-1 in dual matches (3-1 ECC).
