MILWAUKEE -- Visiting Judson University (Illinois) topped host Alverno College, 6-3, in the Inferno's home and season opener Friday evening at Lake Park.

The Eagles (3-0) jumped out to a quick 3-0 lead after taking the entire doubles slate by scores of 8-4, 8-2 and 8-4.

Alverno (0-1) played even with Judson in singles action with wins at the No. 1, 3 and 4 positions, but losses at the other three gave the visiting Eagles the dual win.

Asia Butler-Yeo (6-3, 6-1) and Laeren Yates (6-4, 6-2) won in straight sets at No. 1 and 4, while rookie Michelle Alexander duked it out with her Judson opponent at No. 3 to capture her first collegiate victory in three sets, 6-2, 1-6, 10-5.

The Inferno hosts a pair of duals tomorrow at Nicolet H.S. versus Lake Forest College and Ripon College at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. in Glendale.
