AURORA, Ill. — The Ohio Northern women's tennis team extended its winning streak to four matches with a 9-0 non-conference victory at Aurora (Ill.) on Friday afternoon at the Washington Middle School Courts.

The Polar Bears improve to 12-3 overall, while the Spartans fall to 4-11.

Curry won 6-0, 6-0 at No. 4 singles, Staskiewicz won 6-0, 6-3 at No. 5 singles and the pair combined to win 8-3 at No. 1 doubles.

Senior Ashley Ochsenhirt (Birmingham, Ala./Briarwood Christian) won 6-0, 6-1 at No. 1 singles, freshman Olivia Schrager (Dayton/Miami Valley) won 6-0, 6-0 at No. 2 singles and junior Mackenzie Wills (Ada) won 6-0, 6-0 at No. 3 singles for Ohio Northern.
