On The Fighting Irish

Notre Dame (2-2) returns to action following a 4-1 loss at Louisville on Feb. 9. The Irish played once last weekend after losing to the Cardinals, with a Feb. 11 match against Illinois cancelled due to weather. The Irish are looking to improve on a 2-0 mark at home this year.

On the dual season, Rachel Chong and Cameron Corse own 3-1 records at singles, while Brooke Broda and Allison Miller are both 2-1. Corse and Zoe Spence boast a 3-1 doubles record at the number two spot during the spring.

On The Hoosiers

Indiana (8-1) is playing away from home for the first time on the spring. The Hoosiers won their first eight matches, but are coming off a 4-3 setback to Tennessee on Feb. 11.

Madison Appel owns a 7-0 record at one singles, followed by Caitlin Bernard at 5-0 at number two. IU has juggled the lineup at 3-6 singles, with the top mark amongst that group a 4-1 record from Jelly Bozovic playing at five singles. Natalie Whalen and Olga Zavarotnaya are 4-1 on the dual season at one singles, while Appel and Michelle McKamey are 4-1 at two and Bernard and Bozovic are 5-0 at three.

Notre Dame leads the all-time series with Indiana, 19-11, including a 19-8 mark under Irish head coach Jay Louderback.

On The Raiders

Wright State enters the weekend at 3-5, hosting a doubleheader with Toledo and Murray State on Saturday, Feb. 17, before traveling to Notre Dame.

Karoline Haller has played at one doubles in all eight matches in 2018, posting a 3-5 mark, with Haily Morgan 4-4 at two singles. At doubles, Haller and Morgan are 2-2 at one singles, while Luisa Pelayo and Grace Whitney own WSU’s best doubles record with a 2-1 mark at two.

It will be just the second meeting between Notre Dame and Wright State, with the Irish having swept the Raiders, 7-0, a season ago.
