OGDEN – In the final home match of the season, the Weber State women’s tennis team took down Eastern Washington 5-2 Sunday morning.
“It was a great team effort today to get this solid win,” said assistant coach Mark Roberts. “The girls responded very well after losing the doubles point and they should be very proud of their individual singles performances. We look forward to a good week of practice before hitting the road for SUU and NAU.”
Weber State started the match a little lackluster as Eastern Washington quickly picked up the doubles points with wins in the No. 2 and No. 3 spots. However, the WIldcats bounced back for several successes in singles play.
WSU picked up five straight singles wins to claim the match. Caitlin Herb was the first Wildcat to come out victorious as she took down Faye Worrall 6-3, 6-0 in the No. 2 spot.
To send things in favor of Weber State Tereza Pilzova picked up a 6-4, 7-5 win over Janaya Smith in the No. 1 spot.
The final Wildcat to pick up a win was Dominique Beauvais in the No. 3 spot. Beauvais defeated Erin Blessing 4-6, 6-2, 6-0.
Weber State is now 3-15 overall on the season and 3-6 in Big Sky Conference play. Weber State will hit the road for the final regular season games of the year to Southern Utah and Northern Arizona.
