Pacific Defeats PLU in Five-Hour Tennis Match

Tina Aarsvold and Leah Newell

PARKLAND - In a Northwest Conference women's match that last five hours Friday, the visiting Pacific Boxers survived a doubles tiebreaker and a pair of three-set singles matches to defeat Pacific Lutheran, 7-2, at Sprinker Tennis Center.

Pacific is now 5-3 overall and 4-3 in the conference while PLU falls to 0-7 overall and 0-6 in the NWC.

The Lutes picked up a point in doubles play and came a tiebreaker away from another win. Allison McClure and Katherine Patton made it three straight wins at No. 3 doubles with a 9-7 victory over Rachel Mizuno and Amber Crariotto. The No. 1 doubles match came down to a tiebreaker and Pacific's Cat Goya and Megan Yoshimoto survived a challenge from Leah Newell and Tina Aarsvold before prevailing, 9-8 (7-2). The No. 2 doubles match went to Pacific's Kelsey Trujillo and Lillian Do over Cora Wigen and Valery Jorgensen, 8-3.

Catherine Miolla was PLU's winner in singles, defeating Kelsey Lack, 7-5, 6-2, at No. 6.

Two of the other matches went to three sets, and in both cases the Pacific player rallied from a set down. At No. 2 it was Yoshimoto coming from behind to beat Wigen, 4-6, 6-1, 6-2, and at No. 3 Mizuno beat Aarsvold, 4-6, 6-1, 6-3.

Pacific's Goya, Trujillo and Do all won their singles matches in straight sets.

PLU is back in action at 12:30 tomorrow afternoon when it hosts Willamette at Sprinker Tennis Center.
