ELGIN, Ill. - - - This past Saturday, the Lady Eagles faced off in their first CCAC Spring match-up against St. Ambrose University. After SAU grabbed two out of the three doubles, the Eagles had their hands full to save the match for a win.


The Eagles came out in the singles matches with the strength to battle for every point and it showed on the court. After Abby Jungles (JR/Freeport, IL) & Martha Banda (SO/Trilport, France) grabbed the first point in their doubles match, Jungles, Ellen Binnion (FR/Belleville, IL) and Irina Iacob (SO/Canada) all won their singles matches in straight sets. With the match being tied at 4-4, it all came down to the No.1 singles match of Banda. Martha lost her first set and then proceeded to battle back during the second set to take the set win. This put not only her match into a tie-breaker, but the deciding match for the Eagles to win the match. After having four match points, Banda was able to take the lead by two and win her match and secure the team win for Judson.
