Tempe, AZ- The No. 7 Arizona State Women's Tennis Team pushed their record up to 7-3 Friday afternoon with a 5-2 win over the 15th-ranked Fighting Irish of Notre Dame (7-6).

The Sun Devils hope to continue in their successful ways on Sunday afternoon, March 16, with a match against Florida International (3-9).
The match is set for 12 noon at ASU's Whiteman Tennis Center.
