GRIFFITH, Ind. – The University of Chicago women's tennis team secured its second shutout in as many contests by topping DePauw University 9-0 on Thursday night.

The No. 8-ranked Maroons moved to 2-0 while the No. 38-ranked Tigers dropped to 0-1.

Doubles went according to script with UChicago wins of 8-3, 8-5 and 8-5. Singles play saw complete performances across the board, as all six spots finished in straight sets. Three of the matches saw the Maroons limit the Tigers to one game or fewer – junior Catherine Xu at No. 2, first-year Claudia Ng at No. 3 and first-year Brigitte Wu at No. 4. DePauw did not capture more than six games in any of the bouts.
