LAST TIME VS. MARSHALL
No. 70 Marshall swept the Bearcats, 7-0, on Jan. 22, 2005 in Huntington, W. Va. MU got off to a quick start by sweeping the doubles point against the Bearcats to claim a 1-0 lead. In singles action, the Herd continued to control the action with All-American Ashley Kroh putting on a dominating display at No. 1 with a 6-0, 6-0 win. Jeanne Schwartz put the Herd up 3-0 with her victory at No. 5 singles and Joelle Good was victorious at the No. 3 spot to secure the win for the Herd at 4-0.

STILL LEADING THE WAY
As has been the case in each of her seasons as a Bearcat, senior Jill Klauck is UC's leader in singles wins. As a freshman she put up the third-best season ever by a first-year player with 21 wins. She followed that up with 19 as a sophomore and 16 last year. Klauck stands at 11-11 this year, five wins ahead of anyone else. Her 67 career wins is seventh-best all-time at UC.

BEARCATS ON THE BOARD
Playing with their most complete lineup of the season, the Bearcats earned their first victory by beating Dayton, 5-2, on April 1. UC swept the doubles matches and won four singles matches on the day. Keying the win was the return of junior Hannah Hinton. A 17-match winner as a freshman, she played her first singles match of the year after being hampered by injuries and won at No. 3, as well as No. 2 doubles.

SUCCESSFUL WEEKEND
Senior Jill Klauck and freshman Jenny Rowen each won consolation championships at the season-opening Spartan Cup in September, hosted by Michigan State. Klauck defeated Michigan State's Pascale Schnitzer, 6-4, 6-2, to claim the Flight A consolation title. For the weekend, she won three-straight matches after dropping her opener. Rowen won the Flight B consolation title by forfeit after earning victories in two of her first three matches.

PLAYING SHORTHANDED
In UC's opening three dual matches and the last three matches in March, coach Kimberly Jones has had some difficulty filling out a lineup as only four Bearcats were healthy to play singles. The combination of injuries and illnesses have produced an 0-6 mark in those matches and contributed greatly to UC's record.

YOUTH IS SERVED
Now in her third year, head coach Kimberly Jones is getting settled in her recruiting and this year has UC's largest freshman class in years. After graduating a very successful senior class last season, UC has five newcomers this year. Three of them, Carling Arundel, Jenny Rowen and Elizabeth Young, are among the top four winners on the team and Young has claimed the top spot in the lineup.

FRESHMAN TRADITION
The Bearcats have boasted extremely successful freshmen in the last five years. Lyndsey Molony won 19 singles matches in 2000-01, the third-most ever by a UC freshman. Julie Klauck surpassed that total the next year with 20 wins, and Jill Klauck took it further in 2002-03 with 21 wins. Hannah Hinton won 17 singles matches and a team-best 23 doubles contests in her initial season. This year boasts three freshmen who are second on the team with six singles wins -- Carling Arundel, Jenny Rowen and Elizabeth Young.

SHE KNOWS WHAT SHE'S TALKING ABOUT
Head Coach Kimberly Jones was a two-time NCAA All-American at San Diego State in 1977 and 1978. A year later she began an eight-year playing career on the Women's Tennis Association Tour. Among her accomplishments on the WTA, Jones captured the U.S. National Indoor Championship in 1983 and was a member of the U.S. Open Final Eight Club which honors players who reach the final eight of the U.S. Open during their careers. Jones was ranked as high as No. 25 in the world and played in the U.S. Open seven times, made five appearances at Wimbledon and three each in the French and Austrailian Opens.
