RENO, Nev. - On the final home match of her career with the University of Nevada, senior Caroline Bailly picked up a pair of victories as the No. 56 Wolf Pack shut out Hawai`i 7-0 Monday at Lakeridge Tennis Club.

Bailly, the lone senior from Liege, Belgium, picked up her 70th career singles win in the No. 1 position, defeating Sophie Kobuch 6-3, 6-1. Bailly, who is second in Nevada’s (8-8, 3-1 Western Athletic Conference) all-time career singles list, is 13 wins away from tying Tracy King (1990-91) for the number one spot.

Sophomore Florence De Vyre picked up her 14th win on the season in the No. 2 spot, defeating Ellen Linsenbolz 6-2, 5-7, 6-2. Along with Bailly, who also has 14 wins this season in singles, De Vrye is three wins away from tying the eighth position in the all-time singles wins list in a season, held by three players, Bailly and Myriam Bouchlaka in 2005-06 and Vania Apodaca in the 2000-01 season.

Junior Maria Mizyuk picked up her 50th career win in singles in the No. 3 position, defeating Anja-Vanessa Peter 4-6, 6-2, 6-2.
