Women's Tennis tops Mac, moves to 7-0

St. Thomas and Macalester likely made Minnesota history on Wednesday when they played an outdoor women's tennis match in the month of February.

With a partly sunny sky and temps in the mid-50s to start the match, the Tommies went on to post a 9-0 victory.

It was the fourth conference win in the last six days for No. 37-ranked St. Thomas (7-0 overall, 5-0 MIAC).

Jenna Czarnecki rallied from a slow start to win a 10-7 tie-breaker in the final set at fourth singles.

The Toms play again indoors on Sunday at St. Ben's.
