Riding a four-game win streak, the Liberty women's tennis team headed to Port St. Lucie, Fla., on Monday for the first of four matches during Spring Break. The Lady Flames came away from their first day of action with a 7-0 sweep of the Missouri Southern Lions to extend their streak to five.

Liberty captured the momentum early, as it took all three doubles matches to secure the point. The tandem of Jordan Jenkins and Ekaterina Kuznetsova remained undefeated in No. 1 doubles with an 8-4 victory. Stephanie Brown and Hannah Fick captured the point for the Lady Flames, defeating Ashton Lawrence and Brittany Kockler 8-2. Martyna Hanusz and Fabiana Gouveia completed the doubles sweep with an 8-0 shutout in No. 3 doubles.

The doubles matches foreshadowed singles play, as the Lady Flames posted victories in all six matches. Jenkins was a dual winner once again, as she captured the No. 1 singles match in straight sets, 6-0, 6-0. Kuznetsova and Brown mirrored Jenkins' performance by taking straight set, 6-0, 6-0, victories in No. 3 and No. 4 singles. Hanusz, playing in No. 2 singles for just the second time this season, defeated Missouri Southern's Kati Andersen, 6-3, 6-0.

In No. 5 singles, Fick earned the victory, 6-1, 6-3, over Lauren Skimbo, while Gouveia completed the sweep for the Lady Flames with a straight set No. 6 singles win, 6-0, 6-3. Monday's contest marked the second time Liberty has captured all seven points in a match this season.

Now riding a five-game winning streak, the Lady Flames, 6-3, gear up for two matches on Tuesday. Liberty will square off against Hastings at 9 a.m., followed by an evening match with McMurray slated for 5 p.m.
