After taking their first loss of the season against Westmont College on Feb. 4, the women’s tennis team responded. With a clean 4-0 sweep over Lewis and Clark, they soared to 2-1 on the season. The Eagles took the doubles point, then took three more from singles matches to close out the night. Freshman Colbeyshae Emery was the first to win her match, followed by senior Lauren Lee and junior Lily Waterhouse.


The doubles point was earned by Lee, Waterhouse, sophomore Inez Diaz and freshman Faith Grisham through two quick wins, both finishing 6-2. Three of the singles matches did not finish because Lewis and Clark were too far behind to win the game. However, sophomore Anna Hartmann won her first set, 7-5, before her match was cut off, while Grisham was just one game away from winning her match.

“I think we played loose and fun, and we were ready to compete,” said head coach Dave Goodman. “The last couple matches we’ve been a little tight, just because it was the first couple matches of the season. Tonight I felt like we hit our stride.”

The Eagles (2-1) will face Azusa Pacific University on Monday, Feb. 10 at 4 p.m. at the Biola Tennis Center.
