CORAL GABLES, Fla. — No. 17 Miami (5-1) defeated the Baylor (5-3) women’s tennis team 5-2 Friday at the Neil Schiff Tennis Center. The Hurricanes took the doubles point and Baylor split decisions on the singles court.

The Bears’ Kris Sorokolet took a 7-5, 6-2 win on the No. 4 singles court, and Jessica Hinojosa took victory 6-4, 6-2 on the No. 2 singles court.
