Foresters Start Spring with Win over Washington College

Freshman Tebatso Duba and Emma Wang each won twice as Lake Forest started its Spring Break trip to Hilton Head, South Carolina, Sunday with a 7-2 victory over Washington College.

Duba and Wang doubled up their opponents 8-4 at #3 doubles to give the Foresters the early lead. The other two doubles matches were decided by tiebreakers with Washington coming out on top at #1 and Lake Forest senior Allison Watts and sophomore Tyranny Miller prevailing 8-7 (7-2) at #2.

Lake Forest freshman Katie Wegrecki was the first to finish in singles and her 6-1, 6-2 triumph at #6 made the score 3-1. Wang added a 6-1, 6-3 victory at #5 and sophomore Julie Lord came back to win 0-6, 6-4, (12-10) at the top of the lineup to clinch the match for the Foresters. A tiebreaker also determined the winner at #2, where the Shorewomen earned their second point of the contest. Duba took the first set 6-1 and the second 6-2 at #3 and junior Leeza Bodnar closed out the match with a 6-3, 6-4 victory at #4.

The Foresters' win was their 13th in as many matches this year while Washington fell to 1-2.

Lake Forest will take on Nazareth University Monday morning at 8:30 (EST) at Hilton Head High School.
