COLLEGE PARK, Md. - The No. 33 University of Maryland women's tennis team kept its season-opening winning streak intact Sunday afternoon with a convincing 6-1 victory over the West Virginia Mountaineers in a non-conference match played at the Tennis Center at College Park.

After earning a point by taking two of the three doubles matches, the Terps (4-0) won five of the six singles matches in straight sets to pick up their fourth-straight win, including the second at home this weekend. Maryland edged No. 51 Mississippi, 4-3, yesterday afternoon.

The Mountaineers (2-2) lost for the second-consecutive time.

Freshmen Lisa Miller and Elyse Steiner, playing in the No. 3 position, clinched the doubles point with an 8-6 win over WVU's Gabriela Blaskovicov and Stephanie LaFortune.

The teams split at the No. 1 and 2 positions with the Terps' Marianne Baker and Brooke Rogers falling to Natalia Prinz and Stacey Percival 8-6, and sophomore Michal Amir and freshman Maggie MacKeever defeating Kelly Walsh and Monica Lyskawa 8-3

Baker, who was playing with Rogers for the first time this season, bounced back in singles, easily dispatching of Prinz 6-1, 6-0 at the No. 1 position. Baker is ranked No. 75 nationally in singles.

Amir, playing at the No. 2 position for Eleanor Peters, had little trouble with Percival, closing her out in straight sets (6-1, 6-1).

With the Terps leading 3-0, MacKeever won the clincher at the No. 5 position, defeating Walsh 6-1, 6-1.

Rogers, seeing her first action of the spring, won at the No. 6 position, posting a 6-4, 6-2 victory over Ashley Constantine.

Miller had the other singles win for the Terps. She held off LaFortune 6-4, 7-5.

The Mountaineers' lone point came from Lyskawa who downed Steiner 6-2, 6-4 in the No. 3 slot.

The Terps are back in action next weekend when Atlantic Coast Conference play kicks off. After facing Old Dominion Saturday (10 a.m.) in a home non-conference match, Boston College visits College Park Sunday. That match will also begin at 10 a.m.
