Women’s tennis traveled to Irvine, Calif. on Friday afternoon to compete against the No. 20 nationally-ranked Concordia University Irvine Golden Eagles. Even with Biola being a solid team and making marks throughout the season, the Eagles were not able to overcome the dominance of CUI, losing 1-4.


The doubles matches flew in favor of Biola. Freshmen Brooke Fager and Lilly McNeill defeated their No. 2 CUI opponents 7-5 while freshman Gaby Carvajal and sophomore Ines Diaz did the same, winning their No. 3 match 7-5. It was freshman Colbyshae Emery and sophomore Mary Bracsia who fell to their No. 1 Concordia opponents, 3-6.

With the game still in reach, and frankly in favor of Biola, the real test came during the singles matches. However, it was clear steering ahead for the Golden Eagles who would go on to win every match finished. Emery lost her No. 1 heartbreaker 7-7 in the third set while Carvajal, Fager and McNeill all lost their singles matches 1-6. Brascia and Diaz left their matches unfinished.

The Eagles now sit at a 12-4 overall record as they prepare to host Hawaii Pacific University at the Biola Tennis Center on Thursday, April 15 starting at 1 p.m.
