DULUTH — Recent Pequot Lakes High School graduate Carly Chaney became the record holder for the longest winning streak in the University of Minnesota, Duluth women’s tennis.

In a 5-2 victory over the University of Minnesota, Crookston Golden Eagles on March 18, Chaney won her No. 4 singles match 6-1, 6-0 over Michelle Swyter to run her winning streak to nine straight.

She also won her No. 3 doubles match 6-4 with partner Olivia Honsey.

The Bulldogs split in their most recent action Saturday, March 25, but Chaney pushed her winning streak to 11 straight with singles victories in both. UMD fell to Winona State 5-2 and defeated Upper Iowa University 5-2.
