Laubach Tops Cedarville's No. 1 In Eagles' Loss

ImageORLANDO--Jenna Laubach took down Cedarville University's No. 1 player on Wednesday, but Eastern Women's Tennis dropped the match 8-1.

Laubach defeated Cedarville's Lily Schuler 5-7, 6-2, 10-2.

Eagles' head coach Mark Spangler said, "Jenna played a great match and a nearly perfect super tie-breaker. Her ground strokes were solid and she hit many winners from both her forehand and backhand side."

Eastern's third doubles of Elaine Grazulis and Nicole Filipek pushed the competition but fell 8-6. "I like the way they played as a team," Spangler said about Grazulis and Filipek.

The Eagles begin the trip home on Thursday. Coach Spangler said, "Although we lost some tough matches down here, I feel like we are headed in the right direction."
