Meanwhile, the Lady Eagles lost to the Hornets, 4-1. Belen’s No. 1 doubles team of Kristin Elkins and Clarita Valdez won another nail-biter 6-3, 5-7, 6-4.
Belen’s boys and girls teams are now 2-3 in head-to-head matches this year. The Eagles next host Grants at 3 p.m. Tuesday. They’ll finish the week at a two-day tournament at Las Vegas Robertson next Friday and Saturday.
