WILLIAMSBURG — William & Mary women’s tennis ran its win streak to seven matches in quick order on Wednesday afternoon, downing in-state foe Norfolk State, 7-0, at the McCormack-Nagelsen Tennis Center.

The Green and Gold did not drop a set in singles behind victories from graduate student Yu Chen (No. 2), juniors Hedda Gurholt (No. 1), Alessandra Anghel (No. 3), and Ine Stage (No. 4), sophomore Yaelle Vaissaud (No. 6) and freshman Francesca Davis (No. 5).
