Published 4/7/18

RED OAK, Iowa – No. 6 Northeastern State continued their dominance in MIAA regular season play with an 8-1 against No. 46 Northwest Missouri State.  The win is the 45th in a row for the RiverHawks and with a victory on Sunday at Missouri Western, they will clinch at-least a share of its fourth straight MIAA Regular Season title.

However, the RiverHawks were edged out 9-7 on court one in what would end up being their lone loss of the day.

Northeastern State continued to control the Bearcats in singles, picking up wins on court four then three.  No. 8 ranked Stoll was the overall match clincher for the RiverHawks on the main court beating No. 58 Tania Teruel 6-3, 6-1. 

No. 39 Mayra Jovic continues to remain perfect this spring at 15-0 with the junior winning 6-4, 6-3 on court two.

The RiverHawks will remain indoors on Sunday to face Missouri Western State at 11 a.m.
