Hinsdale’s Caroline Dolehide got her 2020 professional tennis calendar off to a great start with a pair of strong doubles performances.

At the Australian Open last month, Dolehide teamed with fellow American Jennifer Brady to reach the quarterfinals of the year’s first Grand Slam event before losing to world’s No. 1 pair.

Then at the Dow Tennis Classic Feb. 3-9 in Midland, Mich., she and partner Maria Sanchez lived up to their top seeding by winning the tournament.

The success comes on the heels of a strong second half of 2019 for Dolehide. After winning gold and silver medals at the Pan Am Games in July and making it to the semifinals of U.S. Open women’s doubles competition in September, the 21-year-old notched October triumphs with a singles title in Charleston, S.C., and a doubles championship in Macon, Ga., both USTA pro circuit events.

Dolehide’s current world rankings are 31 in doubles and 142 in singles.


Hinsdale’s Colin Swoyer was named the Western Collegiate Hockey Association’s Defenseman of the Week on Monday. Swoyer led WCHA defensemen with three points and two goals in leading his Michigan Tech University Huskies to a two-game sweep of Ferris State Friday and Saturday. Swoyer, a sophomore, scored both of Tech’s goals Saturday in a 2-0 shutout. He also assisted on teammate Keegan Ford’s first-period power-play goal Friday.

Swoyer has 17 points this season on four goals and 13 assists. He also scored in a 3-2 win over Northern Michigan and had a goal and an assist in the Winter Carnival opener against Lake Superior State. Swoyer has a pair of three-game point streaks this season and ranks fourth in the WCHA with 47 blocked shots.
