Women’s Tennis hosted Westmont College this afternoon in their third game of the season. After taking a hard loss last week to Concordia University Irvine, Biola was able to come out swinging and sweep Westmont in their second win thus far, 4-0.


The three doubles matches didn’t play out as expected. Freshmen Brooke Fager and Lilly McNeill won easily in the No. 2 doubles, 6-3. However, sophomore Mary Brascia and freshman Colbyshae Emery found themselves at a tie of four even in their first match. When the second match came around, their opponents left the game unfinished, resulting in the automatic victory for the Eagles. The No. 3 doubles had no players, so a win by default was ushered to Biola.

The singles matches were similar, as Freshman Gaby Carvajal, Emory and Fager all had unfinished matches by the end of the third rounds. The No. 6 doubles had no players, so they were given another win by default. Thankfully, McNeill and Brascia were able to play and finish their singles, both of which walked away with individual wins, 6-3, 6-1.

The Eagles (2-1) will travel to sunny San Diego, Calif. tomorrow morning at 11 a.m. to take on Point Loma Nazarene University. Live streaming of the matches can be found on the Biola Athletics page.
