INDIANAPOLIS — With a 5-0 sweep of Franklin on Saturday, the Rose-Hulman women’s tennis team is headed to today’s Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference tournament championship.

Emily Roberts 6-4, 6-1; Colleen Stevenson (RH) vs. Chelsea Howell (FC) unfinished; Kylie McCollum (RH) vs. Shawnee Bayes (FC) unfinished; Lauren Miller (RH) vs. Becky Bonomini (FC) unfinished.

Doubles — Paige Cook-Marie Stettler (RH) def. Melissa Sanders-Bethany Harris 8-1; Suzana Mohd-Kylie McCollum (RH) def. Chelsea Howell-Alison Meyer 8-3; Lauren Reberger-Sydney Short (RH) def. Chelsea Platt-Emily Helvie 8-4.

Senior Casey Levitt, who hails from nearby Thousand Oaks, Calif., led Rose with 14 kills, 12 digs and three service aces. Teammates Sarah Jensen and Morgan Dreyer had 11 and 10 kills respectively.

And since Indianapolis didn’t have a first-round pick, the Toledo, Ohio, native is getting a lot more scrutiny that most second-rounders taken in the draft.
