Eastern's Megan Klosterman goes for the backhand shot against Stevenson on Thursday.

ST. DAVIDS, Pa.--Eastern Women's Tennis clinched a playoff berth after Thursday's convincing win over the Stevenson University Mustangs.

The Eagles won the match 8-1 and improved to 9-4 overall and 3-1 in the Freedom Conference. The victory ensures that the Eagles will be playing in the Freedom Conference Semifinals on April 29.

The Eagles face Misericordia University and King's College next week and could earn home court advantage in the opening round with wins over both of those teams. Having home court would seem to be advantageous for the Eagles. They are 7-0 at St. Davids this season.

Eastern ripped through doubles play 8-0, 8-2 and 8-4. Jenna Laubach and Megan Klosterman continued to dominate in singles play. Laubach took No. 1 singles 6-0, 6-1, and Klosterman won No. 2 singles 6-0, 6-2.

At No. 6 singles, Nicole Filipek went unbeaten in a pro-set.

The Eagles return to the playoffs after missing them last season.

On Monday, the Eagles will finally play their match against Misericordia that has already been rained out twice this season.
