Roundup: Eagles beat St. Joseph in tennis; Pioneer Valley sets school record in golf

The submitted Arroyo Grande lineup was correct this time, and the Eagles cruised to an 8-1 win over St. Joseph in a Mountain League match at the Knights' courts Tuesday.

The Eagles had to forfeit a 7-2 win over the Knights at Arroyo Grande in the first round of league play because their submitted lineup was incorrect. An Eagles coach said Arroyo Grande's number five and six players were inadvertently transposed on the lineup sheet.

Tuesday's results left San Luis Obispo (7-1 Mountain League going into Tuesday), Arroyo Grande (7-2) and St. Joseph (12-2, 7-2) still in the hunt for at least a share of the league title.

Arroyo Grande will play at San Luis Obispo at 3 p.m. Thursday in a regular season finale. St. Joseph will play at Paso Robles at the same time.

Eagles singles players Peyton Dunkle, Josceline Ramirez, Kaitlin Zarate and Sophie Mitchem all won in straight sets Tuesday. They lost 14 games between them.

Devan Doud took a three-set win for the Eagles at No. 4 singles. Michahjuliana Lundberg, at No. 2 singles, gave the Knights their lone point with a 6-3, 6-1 win.

She remained unbeaten on the year. Lundberg, a freshman, has not lost in singles or doubles.

The Ealges' doubles tandems of Dunkle and Doud, Ramirez and Julia Pitrowski, and Iris Jenssen and Ellie Fuller all won handily in eight-game pro sets. The pairs lost three games between them.
