ELGIN, Ill. - - - The Judson University women's tennis team opened their fall 2017 season with an easy win over the Chief's from Waubonsee Community College. The No.1 doubles team of Irina Iacob & Ellen Binnion started their match and took immediate control of their opponents and won with an 8-1 victory. The No. 2 doubles team of Diana Romero & Rachel Norgren lost in a close match to the Chief's, which still put the Eagle sup 2-1 after doubles. The singles matches were dominated by the Eagles with straight set victories at No.1 Irina Iacob, No.2 Martha Banda, and No.3 Lauren Saiki. The No 5 spot held by freshman Rachel Norgren turned out to be the closest match of the day with her dropping the first set 3-6, but coming back and winning the second set with a score of 6-0 and then controlling the third set tie breaker with a win of 10-4 over her opponent. Freshman Madeleine Klepps stepped in the No.6 spot, but lost that match in straight sets. The Eagles are excited to have a strong ladies team this year with lots of depth in the lineup as they prepare to head into a 5 team tournament this weekend in Southern Illinois.
