The Falcon duo went on to win the next two sets 6-0, 6-4, rallying from a 4-1 deficit in the third set.

At second doubles, Falcons Brea Gauger and Alexa Hess beat Wolverines Meggan Anderson and Kendall Calvert 6-3, 6-7 (7-2), 6-1.

Playing up from the junior varsity squad, Falcons Iona Rohan and Clara Martin defeated Wolverines Summer Fox and Sophie Dillery 6-2, 6-2.

The Falcons’ two singles players did not lose a set. Senior Amelia Weeks defeated Friday Harbor’s Sarah Yasmin 6-1, 6-2, and junior Isla Dubendorf defeated Isabel Gabriel 6-0, 6-2.
