No. 25 Hope Women's Tennis Downs Knox, Illinois 9-0 In Florida

The 25th-ranked Hope College women's tennis team served up an eighth consecutive win on Friday while sweeping Knox, Illinois in Orlando, Florida.

The 9-0 win raised the Flying Dutch's record to 8-1 overall, including 8-0 against NCAA Division III opponents.

Senior Carli Capestany of Hudsonville, Michigan (Hudsonville HS), partnered with freshman Amanda Susnak of Lowell, Michigan (Lowell HS), for the first time to earn an 8-1 victory at No. 3 doubles.

It was Capestany's 65th doubles win at Hope, breaking a tie for sixth place all-time in Flying Dutch history with Nicole Spagnuolo (2008-10).

Hope returns to action on Friday when the Flying Dutch play a 4:30 p.m. nonleague match at Denison, Ohio. | PO Box 9000, Holland, Michigan 49422
