Women's Tennis Beats Biola for First Victory

Women's Tennis Beats Biola for First Victory

LA MIRADA, Calif. - Pacific Lutheran continued to show improvement as the women's tennis season progressed, and the team's hard work paid off Tuesday in an 8-1 win over the host Biola University Eagles.

The Lutes, now 1-10 for the season, picked up all three doubles points to get off to an excellent start against Biola, which is winless in 17 matches this season. Leah Newell and Tina Aarsvold fought off a challenge from Kelly Thompson and Shamariah DeRojas to win 9-7 at No. 1 doubles. Cora Wigen and Valery Jorgensen were 8-4 winners over Mari Pace and Danielle Calbeck at No. 2, while Allison McClure and Katherine Patton had little trouble in dispatching Angela Cobian and Lauren Vogel, 8-1.

Pace defeated Newell in a close super tiebreaker, 6-4, 2-6, 1-0 (11-9), to win the No. 1 singles match and with it Biola's only point. Everything else went to the Lutes, and all of the scores were in straight sets. Wigen defeated Thompson at No. 2, 7-6, 6-4, while Aarsvold made quick work of DeRojas at No. 3, 6-3, 6-2. McClure picked up a win at No. 4 with a 6-4, 6-0 triumph over Angela Calbeck, Patton did the same at No. 5 by a 6-0, 7-5 score over Cobian, and Catherine Miolla finished it with a 6-2, 6-4 victory over Vogel at No. 6.

Pacific Lutheran continues its Southern California spring break trip tomorrow with a 4 p.m. match at Occidental.
