Kim Kirk won at both singles and doubles as the Eagles topped LBC 9-0.

ST. DAVIDS, Pa.- Eight different players won matches as Easten University Women's Tennis picked up its first win of the year with a convincing 9-0 result over the visiting Lancaster Bible College Chargers (1-2) Jenna Laubach, Jenn Balbi, Kim Kirk, and Elaine Grazulis each picked up two wins in the victory.

The Eagles (1-5) jumped out to a quick lead with three convincing results at doubles. Laubach and Balbi won at the top of the order and Kirk and Nicole Filipek earned an 8-2 win at second singles. Grazulis and Angela Anthony moved through the third flight with an efficient 8-1 win.

Erika McChesney and Kathleen Duffy played in the final two singles spots for the Eagles, and the two young Eagles won quick matches. When Jenna Laubach did not drop a game at first singles, the coaches elected to turn the final two singles matches into pro-set matches. Grazulis and Kirk won those two matches in decisive fashion.

Balbi had the toughest match of the day at second singles. She escaped with a 7-5, 6-3 result over Carmin Nachitigal. With a week off before their next match, the Eagles will continue to work on consistency and hope for better weather before they travel to Stevenson University next Thursday.
