Tennis picks up first victory of season

The Shippensburg women’s tennis team picked up its first victory of the season on Friday afternoon defeating Cheyney University 9-0.

SU, despite some great individual performances earlier in the season, had not had a win until Friday. Cassie Sidone continued her strong play, defeating Taniqua Purdie of CU in straight sets. In fact, all of SU’s wins, double and singles, were in straight sets.

On Saturday afternoon, SU looked to build on its first win of the season as it traveled to Millersville. The Marauders proved to be formidable opponents sweeping doubles play, and winning five of six singles matches, to defeat SU 8-1.

Hannah Wolfe provided another strong outing, winning another singles match, pushing her record to 3-4.

MU has proven itself as a difficult opponent for SU, as it has won the last 15 overall meetings between the two schools.

SU has a record of 1-10 on the season, and will travel to West Chester on Tuesday to play host to the Rams at 3:30 p.m. from its South Campus tennis courts.
