LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - The ULM tennis team picked up its fourth straight victory with a 5-0 victory over conference foe UALR Friday morning. The Warhawks (8-2) won the first five singles matches of the morning in a shortened match because of rainy weather in the area.  

Medy Blankvoort moved her record to 10-0 on the season with 6-0, 6-3 victory over Yana Kakovkina at No. 3 singles. Blankvoort moved her winning streak to 11 straight dating back to last season.

Other straight-set winners included Sophie Rufyikiri  (6-2, 6-2) over Viktoriya Plyuta at No. 1 singles, Vivian Polak (6-4, 6-3) over Michaela McShane at the No. 4 position and Monica Winkel (6-0, 7-5) over Alina Kolegova at the No. 6 position.

Ema Turudija topped UALR's Nina Yates 6-4, 3-6, 6-3 in the most thrilling singles match of the morning.

The two teams did not play a doubles point because of an alternate schedule that had singles matches played first.

The Warhawks face Central Arkansas Friday afternoon at 3:30 p.m. in Conway, Ark.
