WACO, Texas - Baylor's women's tennis team extended its win streak to 15 matches with its 4-0 victory over Oral Roberts in first round action of the NCAA Championships at the Baylor Tennis Center on Saturday.

The victory raised the Bears' season record to 23-6 while Oral Roberts finished the season with a 10-8 mark. Baylor is now 9-9 in NCAA Championship matches and 5-5 in first round contests.

It took the Bears only 35 minutes to claim the doubles point. Iva Mihaylova and Zuzana Zemenova remained undefeated at 16-0 with an 8-1 win on court three over Rafaela Souza and Debbie Skinstad. On court two, Zuzana Chmelarova and Klara Zrustova closed out doubles with an 8-3 victory over Hayden Rush and Paige McKinney.

Freshman Lenka Broosova gained point two for the Bears with a 6-1, 6-1 triumph over Tayler Pippin. The victory extended Broosova's win streak to 15 matches. She has a team-leading overall record of 36-8, which ranks No. 3 on Baylor's single season victory list. Klara Zrustova, playing just her second match of the season at No. 6, blanked Corrine Langston 6-0, 6-0. Zuzana Cerna, ranked No. 49, raised her singles win streak to 16 with a 6-1, 6-2 victory over Paige McKinney at court two.

Baylor will take on the winner of the Texas A&M-TCU match. Second round action begins at 2 p.m. on Sunday at the Baylor Tennis Center.

"We came out a little rusty, but that's to be expected when you have two weeks off. Overall I thought we played well, and we took care of business," said Baylor head coach Joey Scrivano.
