Maryland women’s tennis made history with its program record-setting 18th win on Thursday in a 4-0 sweep of the Indiana Hoosiers in the Big Ten Women’s Tennis Tournament.
The victory brought the Terps to 18-6 on the season. Maryland will square off with No. 2 seed Michigan on Friday in Iowa City, Iowa.
The Terps raced out to an early advantage after earning the doubles point. Freshman Kallista Liu got Maryland off to a blazing start with the first singles victory of the day, capped off by sophomore Minorka Miranda and freshman Mary Brumfield completing the sweep.
“We had a great start with doubles today right out of the gate and that set the tone for today,” head coach Katie Dougherty said per Thursday’s release. “Coaches and players know how hard it is to beat a team twice in a season and we played well today to get it done. Very happy with how we competed today and for the women on the team securing that 18th win to set the record. We’re playing our best tennis now and excited for the opportunity to play a very good Michigan team.”
