Knights top Coe with 8-1 victory in Iowa

<wa – Four Knights won in both singles and doubles as the No. 39-ranked Carleton College women’s tennis team returned to the win column with an 8-1 victory over Coe College. Highlighting the decision was the Knights’ first doubles tandem of Danielle Vasiliev (Sr./Lincolnshire, Ill./Stevenson) and Zoe Park (So./Lake Forest, Ill./Lake Forest), who bested the nationally-ranked duo of Haley Resnick and Lauren French, 8-5.

The Knights (4-2) completed the doubles sweep in convincing fashion. Kristina Conrad (Jr./Plymouth, Minn./Robbinsdale Armstrong) and Madeline Prins (So./Pacific Palisades, Calif./Palisades Charter) prevailed 8-1 at second doubles, while Alana Danieu (Sr./East Aurora, N.Y./East Aurora) and Elizabeth Yim (Fy./Orange, Calif./Villa Park) blanked their opponents at the third slot.

Carleton won five of the singles matches, each in straight sets. Vasiliev swept Resnick at second singles, 6-1 and 6-4, while Danieu prevailed 6-3 and 6-1 at the fourth slot. Conrad, Elizabeth Yim, and Faith Yim (Fy./Orange, Calif./Villa Park) each won handily, notching 6-1 and 6-0 victories at third, fifth, and sixth singles, respectively.

The Knights’ next collegiate match will come on Saturday, March 3 when Carleton hosts St. Catherine University for a 2:30pm match at Lifetime Fitness in Lakeville, Minn.
