The 30th ranked Rice women's tennis team opened a two-match eastern swing on Friday by downing an injury-depleted College of William & Mary squad 6-0 on the indoor courts at the McCormack-Nagelsen Tennis Center in Williamsburg, Virginia on Friday.
The Tribe's lineup was limited to five players, and the Owls took quick advantage. With a forfeit in hand on court three, the Owls clinched the doubles point with an 8-1 win on court two.
The action then moved to five singles matches and the Owls rolled to straight set wins in each match.
Senior Kimberly Anicete picked up her 93rd career win to move past Blair DiSesa into sole possession of fifth on the Rice career wins list, while Dominique Harmath ground out a first set tiebreaker then breezed to a 6-1 win in the second set to win her eighth straight match and the 89th of her career.
"Everyone did a really nice job stepping up today and competed well. We've got a quick turnaround now and are looking forward to playing Yale.
The Owls will be back on the courts first thing on Saturday morning when they take on 52nd ranked Yale.
