The story: In two conference matches, the women’s tennis team sent a message to the Big East: Watch out. Against St. John’s and DePaul, the Bulls dominated at home winning both matches 7-0. The team finished the regular season with an impressive 9-1 record, including four victories over ranked teams and achieving its highest ranking of the season finishing at No. 37.
