Western’s other point came at No. 2 doubles where Macey Bickford and Tara Hellriegel were 6-4, 6-2 winners.

“They’ve been playing awesome this week,” Western coach Amy Messer said of her players. “I’m very proud of Brooke Jansen winning against Eastern [Wednesday] and then winning again [Thursday]. She is really coming into her own even as a freshman. She has learned a lot this year and has grown a lot.

“Allie and Baylee have been consistent and it was a really good win for the No. 2 doubles. It was good all around.”
