The Eagles finally step-foot on the courts after having games against Westmont College postponed just the day prior. Today, Biola competed against Saint Katherine University at home and they did not disappoint. Following in the women’s footsteps, the men defeated the Firebirds, 7-0.


Sophomores Alexei Prokopchuk and Sebastian Herrera took the first doubles match with ease, 6-0. Freshman Isaac Cordova and sophomore Alex Sedeno had a tighter matchup but were still able to take the second doubles, 6-3. Senior Erik Martinez and sophomore Andres Meneses held the closest competition of the day, but ultimately took the victory, 7-5.

The singles matches proved no different. Prokopchuk, Herrera, Cordova, Meneses, Sedeno and Martinez all ended their individual matches on top, ending the afternoon with an impressive sweep over the Firebirds and a great start to the season.

The Eagles (0-1) will return to the Biola Tennis Center on Friday, Feb. 12 to take on Concordia Irvine University at 12 p.m. Live streaming of the matches can be found on Biola’s Athletics website.
