Brittany O’Reilly (Green Bay, Wis./Southwest H.S.) posted a 6-1, 6-1 win over Georgia Lammers of Dayton in flight seven for her second singles win in as many tournaments.

Kristin Zakiewicz (Bristol, Ind./Northridge H.S.) and Angelina Goheen (Aurora, Ill./Rosary H.S.) added Valpo’s first doubles win of the season with an 8-3 triumph over Lammers and Victoria Marchant of Dayton in flight three.  The duo had dropped their first contest of the day to a team from IUPUI 8-4.
