The Eagles swept doubles play and picked up wins in singles play from Jenna Laubach, Megan Klosterman, Elaine Grazulis, and Nicole Filipek.
With the win, the Eagles improved to 3-3 while the Owls dipped to 5-4.
Eastern took the doubles matches 8-3, 8-5 and 8-4. Eastern mixed up its No. 2 and 3 doubles and saw good results. Coach Mark Spangler said that in doubles play they did a great job of getting to the net and poaching balls.
In singles play, Klosterman and Grazulis won their matches in a third set super-tiebreaker.
Laubach won a tight match in No. 1 singles, winning 6-2, 7-6 (9-7).
“She played really well from the baseline,” Spangler said. “She’s playing really well overall now. I’m very confident in her in close games.”
