    EVANSTON, Ill. - No. 2 Northwestern improved to 14-2 overall and 4-0 in the Big Ten with a 6-1 win at No. 36 Indiana Friday afternoon.

    The `Cats swept the doubles point for the third-consecutive match and the seventh time this season. NU added five singles victories to seal the victory, all of which came in straight sets.

    Freshman Audra Cohen (Plantation, Fla./St. Thomas Aquinas) and junior Cristelle Grier (Epsom, England/Putney) recorded their 10th-consecutive victory at No. 1 doubles, beating Walterova and Batty, 8-6.

    Although Head Coach Claire Pollard has only called upon senior Andrea Yung (San Marino, Calif./San Marino) four times this spring, Yung continued her run of perfection by improving to 4-0 in dual matches. All of those victories have come in straight sets.

    Northwestern returns to action at 9 a.m. CT Sunday, April 3 at Penn State.
