STLCOP hosted Greenville College on Friday, Feb. 13, in an indoor match at St. Clair Tennis Center in O’Fallon, Ill. The Euts fell 5-4 to the Panthers in their first tennis match of 2015. Playing a player short, the Eutectic squad forfeited two courts, which determined the fate of the match results.
Playing number-two singles, fourth-year Georgie Boeckmann came back from a 6-0 first set loss to defeat Greeville’s Lezlie Friedline 0-6, 6-4, 10-7. Third-year Anna Karasiewicz and second-year Jenna Smith also claimed singles wins for the Euts. Karasiewicz beat Amanda Scott at court three, 7-5, 6-2, and newcomer Smith locked down court five with a 6-1, 6-2 win over Emily Britt. Karasiewicz and Smith teamed up for the only Eutectic doubles win at court two, dominating Abby Maurer and Christina Bowman, 8-1.
The Eutectics are now 2-1 for the 2014-15 season. They will take a week off from competition before hosting Stephens College at St. Clair on Saturday, Feb. 28, for their first conference match.
