Big Rapids, Mich. - The Ferris State University women's tennis team wrapped up its first weekend of action by winning two of three matches as the Bulldogs topped Findlay 7-2 on Sunday (Sept. 9) to conclude action on the road.

FSU took the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) encounter to improve to 2-1 overall this year.  It was also the second-straight win for the Bulldogs under first-year head coach Chad Berryhill.

The Bulldogs jumped out to a 3-0 lead after the doubles round as they swept the tandem action.  The closest of the three doubles affairs was by an 8-5 score at the second spot in the lineup.
