Spokane, Wash. – The Eastern Washington University women's tennis team stayed closed to home in its single weekend match versus Gonzaga on Saturday, Feb. 7, in which the Eagles were able to pick up several game wins, but fell by a final score of 7-0.
In the tightest match of the afternoon, sophomore Katrina Domingo matched up against GU's Alex Bourguignon in the fourth positon, but lost by a final tally of 6-3, 6-1.
Coming off of a stellar two match stretch against WSU and Idaho, sophomore Carolina Lopez looked to continue her winning ways versus the Bulldog's Melanie Yates, but was not able to extend her streak in EWU's second-closest match of the day in the fifth position (6-3, 6-1).
"Today's match highlighted many areas we need to work on, mostly the need to be more aggressive and move forward, rather than being on the defense wiaiting for our opponent to do something," said head coach Dustin Hinson, "I was proud of our effort even in such a one sided match. Katrina Domingo showed some real tenacity out there and had a very close match even though the results didn't show it."
Following this afternoon's match, Eastern will start a six game home stretch where they will face Sacramento State in its first Big Sky Conference competition of the season on Friday, Feb. 13, at 10:00 a.m. The Eagles will play Whitman two days later on Sunday, Feb. 15, at 10:00 a.m.
