Eagles Edged By Crusaders
Eastern's No. 1 and 2, Jenna Laubach and Megan Klosterman were double winners.
Laubach and Klosterman won their doubles match 8-6 over Julie Seidel and Becca Perkins.
Eastern's Nicole Filipek picked up a singles win in the No. 6 spot 6-2, 6-2 over Alvernia's Rachael Eberhardt.
The Eagles tied the overall match at 4-4 after Laubach and Klosterman won their singles matches. Elaine Grazulis' No. 3 singles match became the decider, but Alvernia's Lillian Hussar snuck past her 4-6, 7-5, 7-5.
Eagles' head coach Mark Spangler commented that he was impressed with how Laubach handled her singles match. "She had to patient and she was able to win the long rallies," he said. Spangler noted that Laubach had lost to Seidel in singles play last season, but this time Laubach was able to "bagel" her opponent 6-0 in the first set and then respond after losing the second set 6-3 to win the third set 6-2.
Eastern plays at Bryn Mawr College at 4 p.m. on Friday.
