Biola women’s tennis lost to Concordia University in the PacWest Women’s Tennis Championship Wednesday morning. The Eagles struggled in every match, fighting for lone points each set but in the end losing 5-0.

The No. 1 doubles team of junior Lauren Lee and sophomore Esther Lee went down first, losing 6-1. No. 2 doubles, freshman Ines Diaz and junior Allison Torres, followed close behind with a 6-2 loss. Sophomore Lily Waterhouse and freshman Anna Hartman, the No. 3 doubles team, played an unfinished match. The Eagles then turned their focus to the singles after a difficult first half of the match.

Diaz struggled again in the No. 2 singles spot, winning a lone point in the second set in a 6-0, 6-1 loss. Sophomore Madison Swaney, No. 4, and Lauren Lee, No. 5, replicated the pattern of losses for the Eagles 6-1, 6-0 and 6-2, 6-2. No. 1 player Esther Lee was the last to go in a much closer last set, 6-1, 6-3. Concordia walked away with the 5-0 win.
