The Eastern Washington University women’s tennis played the final match of its 2009 Big Sky Conference season on Tuesday evening (March 24) and fell to defeat at the hands of host Northern Arizona, 6-1.
In doubles, Caitlin Bampton and Kasie King were victorious on the third court by an 8-4 score. However, the Lumberjacks (9-8, 4-1 BSC) took the other two doubles contests to take the doubles point.
In singles, Northern Arizona quickly secured the next three team points to take an insurmountable 4-0 lead. At that point, however, Bampton finished off her perfect day individually with an impressive comeback 1-6, 6-0, 6-2 victory on court four.
The Eagles (7-8, 4-4 BSC) will wrap up their season with eight non-conference matches. The first of those will be at 11 a.m. on Wednesday (March 25) versus Grand Canyon. The Antelopes, who play at the NCAA Division II level, are 9-6.
