Eagles Take Down Midway
MIDWAY, Ky. – Asbury’s women’s tennis team has all but locked up second place in the Kentucky Intercollegiate Athletic Conference after a 5-4 win over Midway on Monday evening. The Eagles have now defeated Midway three straight times and five of their last six matches.

Miriam Waslewski continues to roll, winning 6-2, 6-3 at number four singles for the 14th time in 15 matches this year. She is an astounding 25-2-1 in her brief two-year career. The sophomore would team with Sarah Marshall at number two doubles to win 8-2, the third straight win for the duo.
Morgan Amis won her 10th singles match of the season after a straight set 6-0, 6-1 victory. Amis has won at least 10 matches for the second straight year and has moved from the sixth spot to the fifth spot this year. Amis would team with Izzy Howell to win at number three doubles 8-6. Kate Wenger would also win her singles match on the day, taking the sixth singles spot 6-4, 7-5.
Asbury will wrap up their season with a road match at Alice Lloyd on Tuesday. A win there and the Eagles guarantee themselves second place in the KIAC for the second straight year. They beat Alice Lloyd 9-0 back on September 24th.
