Morgan Spencer got the team's fourth point at four singles with a 6-2, 7-5 win Makayla Adamski. Black closed out the match at one singles with a 6-2, 6-3 win over Anika Baumgartner.
"I am really proud of how the ladies closed out the fall season with the win," said Albertsen. "We fell behind in doubles but showed a lot of fight by coming back and taking four of the six singles points for the win. The fall allowed us to learn a lot about our young team and what we need to work on. Hopefully the girls can take this momentum into the spring season and build on the great start."
