Wilhoite set the tone at number one, winning in straight sets and not giving up a game, while sophomore Audra Bartelt (Jasper, Indiana) and freshman Maggie Coffman (Sellersburg, Indiana) allowed their opponents one game in their straight set victories at number four and six respectively.

In the afternoon match, the Eagles swept all three doubles matches from Quincy University to propel them to a 9-0 victory.

Reilly Ackerman, Bartelt, Coffman, and junior Cassy Froderman (Brazil, Indiana) won their singles matches in straight sets to clinch the contest. Wilhoite and Rees also won at number one and two, respectively, with single pro set victories after the match was decided.

USI concludes the fall season in the GLVC Tournament October 8-9 at the Indianapolis Tennis Center in Indianapolis, Indiana. The Eagles will be the third seed of the six qualifying teams.
