CONWAY, Ark. - ULM notched a 4-0 victory against Central Arkansas Friday afternoon at the UCA Tennis Courts. It marked a rare two-win day as the Warhawks defeated conference foe UALR Friday morning in Little Rock, Ark.

ULM (9-2) rolled through the late afternoon match and didn't drop a set in route to its fifth straight victory. For the second time today the Warhawks did not compete in doubles play.

ULM's Sophie Rufyikiri picked up an easy victory against UCA's Simona Horsikyan with a 6-1, 6-1 result at No. 1 singles. Medy Blankvoort topped Kristina Horsikyan 6-1, 6-3 at No. 3 singles and Monica Winkel knocked off Maribelle Siegfried 6-0, 6-1 at No. 6 singles.
