In singles, sophomore Gabby Knight handed Marion sophomore Graciella Solis her first loss of the season.  The score was 6-1, 6-3.

At No. 3 singles, freshman Brylee Beckley defeated Marion senior Marley White, 6-4, 6-3.

Marion picked up its lone point at No. 1 singles.  In a matchup of two seniors, Marion’s Jaden Sebastian downed Gwendolyn Clark 6-1, 6-1.

The 22nd-ranked Eagles are now 9-4 and will play at 4:45 p.m. Thursday at Yorktown in the rescheduled SmashCancer match.
