RIPON, Wis. — The Lawrence University women’s tennis team rolled to a 9-0 Midwest Conference victory over Ripon College on Tuesday to remain unbeaten in the league.

Lawrence (9-1, 2-0 MWC North) swept the doubles, including an 8-1 victory at No. 1 by Beth Larson and Jenni Roesch, and didn’t drop a set in the singles. Both Gayatri Malhotra at No. 3 and Christina Schaupp at No. 4 posted 6-0, 6-0 victories.

Lawrence ran its winning streak against Ripon to eight consecutive matches. The Vikings have posted three shutouts during that stretch, which dates back to the 2004 season.

Lawrence is tied with Carroll University and St. Norbert atop the North Division. The Vikings host Carroll on Thursday at 3 p.m. at the Lawrence Courts.
