INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - The Western Michigan women's tennis team continued its hot streak to start the 2013 dual match season, as the Broncos defeated the Butler Bulldogs 6-1 in Indianapolis on Saturday.  With the win, the Broncos improve to 3-0 on the season.

The Broncos swept the doubles session for the third straight match, and took five of the six singles matches played against the Bulldogs to set the final score.  In the process, four Broncos improved to 6-0 overall on the season, including Maggie Remynse, who has now won five straight singles matches dating back to last fall, as well as Kelsey King, Nini Sujashvili, and Jill Pastunink. Caroline Aleck added to her team-leading singles wins total, improving to 10-7 on the season.

Remynse and King earned their fifth straight win as a doubles pairing to open the contest, defeating the Bulldogs' Laura Shull and Sienna Reuter 8-0 in the No. 3 doubles match.  Aleck and Kathleen Hawkins were near-perfect in the No. 2 doubles match, beating Caroline Hedrick and Konstantina Adami 8-1, and Sujashvili and Pastunink improved to 3-0 in No. 1 doubles matches with an 8-3 win over Stephanie McLoughlin and Brittany Farmer.

Singles play proved to be somewhat tighter, but the Broncos still finished the session strong with wins in five of the six matches.  Pastunink had the longest match of the day, besting Farmer in a three-set dual by a score of 6-1, 4-6, 6-2 in the No. 3 match.  Sujashvili won her third straight singles match, defeating Stephanie McLoughlin 6-2, 6-2 in the No. 1 match, and Remynse earned her fifth straight with a 6-2, 6-2 drubbing of Adami.  King defeated Shull 6-2, 6-2 in the No. 5 singles match, and Aleck rounded out the results with a 6-0, 6-2 win over Reuter in the No. 6 singles match.
