The Benedictine women's tennis team earned an emotional Northern Athletics Conference victory at Concordia University Chicago, 5-4, on Thursday afternoon. The Eagles got singles victories from Maggie Kane at No. 1 (6-2, 6-0), Andrea Oliva at No. 4 (6-2, 6-3) and Evangelina Gallegos at No. 5 (6-3, 6-1). Kane and doubles partner Lisa Carillo-Gunning took their match at No. 1 doubles (8-2). With CUC winning at third doubles, that left the match decision hanging on the only tandem still on the courts, the No. 2 duo of Ewelina Stachulak and Oliva for BU. Stachulak and Oliva came through for the Eagles, picking up the workman-like 8-6 decision to post the win in Benedictine's column. For more Athletics News, visit the Athletics Web site.
