CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. – The Belmont women's tennis team won their second straight match as they swept Southeast Missouri 6-0 in an OVC match played Friday in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. 

Because of time, singles matches were played first and the doubles matches were bypassed since the match result was determined in singles play.

The Bruins continued their solid play from Thursday, capturing all six singles matches to clinch the 6-0 victory over the homestanding Redhawks.

At position one, sophomore Lindsey Whitehead beat Mariya Kostyuk 6-1, 6-3.  Sophomore Laura Van Eeckhoudt won at number two as she beat Viviana Ortiz 7-5, 6-1.  Junior Kendall Warren won her fifth conference match of the season as she defeated Maria Montenegro 6-2, 6-0. 

At four, freshman Suzanna Stapler outlasted Annisa Warasanti in three sets: 6-3, 3-6, 6-4.  Sophomore Abbie Mather won at number five over Melissa Martin 6-2, 6-1, while junior Ann Lauren Fiepke was victorious at number six over Katy Brady 6-0, 6-2.

Belmont (6-14, 3-6) wraps their regular season tomorrow as they play at UT-Martin.  The match is set for 2:00pm.
