The Benedictine women's tennis squad opened its brief spring season schedule with a split of its matches, topping Robert Morris College (5-4) and losing to the University of St. Francis (6-3). Leading the Eagles on Saturday was its Arizona import, junior Lisa Carrillo-Gunning. Carrillo-Gunning shot down both opponents on the day, including a stirring come-from-behind victory versus St. Francis and a straight-set win against Robert Morris. Carrillo-Gunning also teamed with Ewelina Stachulak to win at No. 1 singles versus USF, but lost to Robert Morris. Senior Maggie Kane also won both of her matches at second singles, going three sets against St. Francis and sweeping past RMC. Kane and Andrea Oliva also won at No. 2 doubles versus Robert Morris. Stachulak and Oliva both won singles matches - at No. 3 and No. 4 respectively - in the Eagles' team victory over Robert Morris.
