BOURBONNAIS, IL (Fri 17 Mar 2017) - The No. 2-ranked Lindsey Wilson women's tennis team collected its second victory in as many days after topping No. 15-ranked Northwestern Ohio 5-3 in a neutral-site match on Friday.
The Blue Raiders (8-4) are now 6-0 against NAIA competition after dispatching the Racers (6-4).
Lindsey Wilson led 2-1 after doubles.
Alex Shchipakina and Natalia Kattah put the first point on the board with an 8-3 victory over Ana Lacerda and Xiomara Aguilar in the third-seeded doubles set. Northwestern Ohio then leveled the match with an 8-6 win in the second-seeded flight.
Maria Prados Cid and Fiona Curty gave the Blue Raiders a lead going into singles play after defeating Amanda Schneider and Alisa Reshetnikova - the No. 8-ranked doubles pairing in the nation - 9-7.
The top-seeded singles flight featured a top-12 matchup as No. 12-ranked Shchipakina defeated No. 8-ranked Schneider - 6-3, 6-2.
