    PEORIA, Ill.- The Southern Illinois women's tennis team closed out the regular season, sweeping Bradley, 7-0.

    The Salukis (16-5, 5-2 MVC) wasted no time as they swept Bradley in doubles play. The duo of Melanie Delsart and Korey Love defeated Corey Mattson and Carly Miles 8-4 at the No. 1 spot. Jennifer Dien and Natasha Tomishima defeated their BU counterparts 8-3 at the No. 2 slot. Twins Ariadna Cairo Baza and Gisela Cairo Baza finished off the doubles sweep by beating their opponents 8-6.
