SPOKANE, Wash. – Husky women's tennis ran its winning streak to four today with a 4-0 road win over Gonzaga at the Stevens Center. The Dawgs will now have a quick turnaround in order to get back to Seattle to host Washington State in the regular season home finale on Friday at 1:30 p.m.
Washington (13-6, 4-5 Pac-12) took the doubles point and then three singles wins to secure the victory over the Bulldogs (11-6) and abandon the remaining three singles matches.
