Mustangs Cap Regular Season With Sweep Of UNT

DENTON, Texas (SMU) - SMU women's tennis capped its regular season with a 4-0 road sweep of North Texas on Saturday at the Waranch Tennis Complex. The victory gives the Mustangs a 20-9 record heading into the conference championships, the most wins in a season since 2011.

The Mustangs didn't drop a set in the entire match at North Texas, cruising to their 10th sweep of the season.

The match started with a doubles victory with wins on lines two and three. Chandler Carter and Claudia Bartolome won their sixth-consecutive match with a 6-2 win. The duo have an 11-1 record together. Nicole Petchey and Winslow Huth won 6-2 to clinch the point. Huth and Petchey are unbeaten in their last 10 completed matches. Jackie Nylander and Hadley Doyle were up 5-3 with match point on the No. 58 doubles tandem in the country at the time of clinch.

In singles, Nylander took down court one, 6-4, 6-2 for the second Mustang point followed by Bartolome winning a pair of 6-2 sets on court four. Katherine Jakeway played line six for the Mustangs and won her match with two 6-4 sets, clinching the dual match victory for the Mustangs.

At the time of clinch, Petchey was one game away from a victory. Doyle was in the midst of a second-set tiebreaker, attempting to close out the match, and Carter had a 6-4, 3-2 lead on line three.

The 20-win regular season is the fourth most regular season victories in program history behind 1982, 2009, and 2010.

The 38th-ranked Mustangs await the seeding of the American Athletic Conference Tennis Championships in Orlando. The top six teams receive byes into the quarterfinals. The first round is salted for Thursday April 22 with the quarterfinals on Friday and the semis and finals on Saturday.
