Milwaukee, Wis. - A sweep of the doubles point followed by five straight-set singles victories paved the way for the Bulldogs against host Milwaukee on Saturday (Feb. 16), as Butler improved to 2-0 in the Horizon League this spring with a 6-1 win over the Panthers at the Paley Tennis Center.
The Bulldogs continued their early-season dominance at doubles, claiming all three bouts for the second straight match. Freshmen Natali Jaimes and Gabriella Bobrowski claimed an 8-3 win at the No. 1 spot, sophomores Molly Casperson and Becky Jenkins earned a similar 8-3 decision at No. 2 and seniors Tiffany McLoughlin and Michelle Hawes followed suit with an 8-3 victory of their own at No. 3.
Butler continued to roll from there by claiming the top five singles matches in straight sets, including a 6-2, 6-2 victory at No. 3 by Bobrowski and a dominant 6-1, 6-1 win at No. 4 by Jenkins.
Butler returns to action on Feb. 23 when they host Toledo beginning at 2:00 p.m. at the Butler Bubble.
