Seaborne topped No. 58 Britney Sanders of Notre Dame (6-2, 6-3) and No. 112 Matea Cutura of DePaul (6-4, 4-6, 11-9). Seaborne has also teamed with sophomore Morven McCulloch at the No. 1 doubles position. The duo has posted a spotless record, helping secure the doubles point against Iowa State, Notre Dame, Creighton, Drake, and Western Illinois.

After dropping her first dual match of the season, junior Christina Harazin has rallied to a 5-1 record. Harazin topped Julie Sabacinski of No. 18 Notre Dame in three sets at the No. 5 position. She then jumped to the No. 4 spot to pick up a straight-set victory over Creighton’s Amanda Noonan. Harazin returned to the No. 5 position to earn her first victory over a ranked opponent, defeating No. 119 Jarret Fisher of No. 71 DePaul. She picked up two more straight-set victories at last Saturday’s doubleheader, topping Drake’s Maddie Johnson (6-4, 6-4) and Western Illinois’ Kristen Havelka (6-0, 6-0).
