SU smashes Cheyney en route to first victory of season


SU picked up its first victory on Friday afternoon.

It was Déjà vu for the Shippensburg University tennis team on Friday afternoon as it took a 9–0 decision over Cheyney University at the Robb Sports Complex tennis courts — mirroring its 9–0 victory over the Wolves one year ago today.

The Raiders blanked the Wolves throughout the match, as all of their singles and doubles winners won in straight sets.

Julia Saintz, Brittnee Buckley, Katie Shearer, Cassie Sidone, Lisa Snader and Hannah Wolfe each earned their first victories of the season.

SU (1-7, 1-0) is tied atop the PSAC East with West Chester University (2-0) and Kutztown University (1-0).

The Raiders will look to secure back-to-back wins for the first time since the 2008-2009 season when they host the Golden Rams on Tuesday afternoon at 4 p.m.
