The top-seeded Garnet women rolled to a record-tying fifth Centennial Conference Women's Tennis Team Championship with an 8-1 victory over second-seed Washington (Md.) at Faulkner Courts.

The Garnet (16-2) extended its win streak to 13 matches, including a stretch of 30 consecutive Centennial victories.

Swarthmore (currently ranked 18th in the country) previously won team championships in 1995, 2001, 2003, and 2005.  The Garnet move into a tie with Franklin & Marshall College for the most tennis championships in conference history.

The Garnet women now wait to learn their fate for the upcoming NCAA Division III National Championships, scheduled to be revealed later this week.  In 2005, Swarthmore fell to the national runner-up Washington & Lee in the tournament's opening round.
