The No. 1 doubles team of Ellee Braniff and Kate Benzian went 1-2, 3-6, 0-6, 6-3. Taylor Woodward and Angie Garcia Gonzalez finished 1-2: 2-6, 0-6, 6-0. Both doubles teams managed to finish strong and win their third sets.
“We continue to work on our personal games and collectively celebrate our small successes,” said Bishop coach Natlee Hapeman. “I am proud of our patience, persistence and the love of the game.”
