Pipers use super-breakers in singles to pull out big win over Falcons

A pair of wins in super-breakers at first and second singles gave the Hamline University women's tennis team a big win over the visiting UW-River Falls Falcons in non-conference play on Thursday.

The match was originally scheduled to be played in River Falls yesterday, but was postponed and moved due to poor weather.

Hamline took two of the three doubles matches, starting with an 8-6 win at first doubles by Nora McGraw and Kelsey Eatherton. Kristen Kiemele and Nicole Krier won at second doubles, 8-3.

Eatherton and Anna Yarbrough played the two singles matches stretched to super-breakers. Eatherton won 6-3, 2-6, 10-6 at first singles while Yarbrough came back from losing the opening set at second singles, 4-6, 6-4, 10-4.

Krier, Wallerich, and Elizabeth Allen then swept the four through six spots. Krier won 6-2, 6-4; Wallerich won 6-1, 6-1; and Allen won her match by set scores of 6-3, 7-5.

Hamline is now 3-13 overall after the non-conference win. The Pipers will next host St. Catherine on Sunday, May 1, at 4:00 p.m.
