The Eagles traveled north to San Francisco, Calif. yesterday afternoon to take on the Academy of Art Urban Knights. Coming off a recent win, Biola was locked in and focused to continue the streak. It was a nail-biter, but the Eagles were able to come out on top with the win, 4-3.

Biola swept the Urban Knights in the doubles matches with relative ease. First to finish was the freshmen duo, Brooke Fager and Lily McNeill, with a 6-2 victory. Freshman Colbyshae Emery and sophomore Maria Brascia followed suit with a 6-4 victory. Freshmen Amelia Kitts and Gaby Carvajal took their doubles to the wire, but secured the final match with a 7-5 win.

However, the singles matches were not as clean of a defeat. Emery, Fager and Carvajal all lost to the Urban Knights. McNeill took her individual matches to three sets, winning the final in a tight score of 7-6. Brascia took her No. 5 singles easily with two rounds of a 6-2 victory. Sophomore Ines Diaz won her No. 6 individual with a first set of 7-5, but won in the second due to her opponent retiring. 

The Eagles (4-2) will venture to San Rafael, Calif. to compete against Dominican University on March 2 at 12 p.m.
