Big Rapids, Mich. - The Ferris State University women's tennis team remained unbeaten by rolling to a convincing 8-1 victory in Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) play over Lake Superior State on Friday (Sept. 25) afternoon at the FSU Racquet and Fitness Center in Big Rapids, Mich.

The match was the first home encounter of the 2009-10 season for the Bulldogs, who improved to 2-0 both overall and in league action with the triumph.

Ferris bolted out to a 2-1 lead following the doubles round and then swept the six singles flights in straight-sets against the Lakers.  LSSU fell to 2-2 overall and 1-2 in the GLIAC with its second-straight setback.

Four Bulldog players were double winners on the day and the group included senior Daniela Dimas (Mexico City, Mexico), juniors Amy Ingle (Battle Creek/Hastings) and Tiffany Rheynard (Kalamazoo/Gull Lake) along with sophomore Melissa Flowers (Orland Park, Ill./Carl Sandburg).

Ingle and Dimas posted the most decisive singles wins with Ingle taking the number one flight and Dimas capturing the sixth singles spot by identical 6-1, 6-1 scores.

Ferris State continues its weekend homestand by hosting Michigan Tech on Saturday (Sept. 26) morning at 10 a.m. (EDT) at the Racquet and Fitness Center.
