The Northern Illinois women's tennis team opened its season with a 5-2 win over Lewis on Friday.

Arantza De La Torre, Mary Malkin, Cristina Alvarez and Stephanie McDonald got singles wins for the Huskies. Nelle Youel and De La Torre won the No. 1 doubles match for NIU while McDonald and Haley Dekkinga earned a win at No. 2 doubles.

"This was a good start for us," NIU head coach Ryun Ferrell said in a news release. "We didn't get wins in matches that we're used to getting them in, so it was good to see others step up and put the team ahead."
