HUNTINGDON, Pa. -- Juniata College women's tennis earned a 7-2 victory while the men dropped a 6-3 decision against Lycoming College at the conclusion of their fall schedule at home Thursday.

In women's doubles, the only women's tennis returners, sophomore Megan Phillips (Jefferson hills, Pa./Thomas Jefferson) and senior Hilary Walsh (Waynesboro, Pa./Waynesboro Area) found themselves behind in the match but battled back to a 9-8 victory with a 7-2 tiebreaker.

Freshman Heather Waring (San Antonio, Texas/John Jay) handily defeated her Lebanon Valley opponent 6-3, 6-1 at No. 2 singles, while Walsh only allowed her foe three games in a 6-3, 6-0 win at No. 5 singles. Phillips fought hard for her No. 4 singles triumph by clinching a 10-5 super-tiebreak.

In the men's match, Justin Wisniewski (Moorestown, N.J./Moorestown) brought home a win at No. 3 singles when he defeated his opponent 6-3, 6-2.

Elliott Perow (Huntingdon, Pa./Huntingdon Area) and Matthew Butler (Quakertown, Pa./Salisbury School) fought for a 9-8 win with a 7-2 tiebreaker at No. 2 doubles. Sam Brumbaugh (Perkasie, Pa./Pennridge) and Clarence Yeung (Hong Kong, China/St. Joseph College) also clinched a Juniata victory when they defeated their No. 3 doubles foes 8-6.
