Shippensburg University’s tennis team picked up its first win of the season on Saturday winning 7-0 over East Stroudsburg University.
SU got its first shutout win in six years as the Raiders dominated their Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) foe in doubles and singles competition.
The Raiders had a 2-0 lead before play even started due to the Warriors having to forfeit No. 5 and No. 6 singles and No. 3 doubles.
The senior duo of Jenna Sluymer and Jazmin Petrantonio won No. 1 doubles 6-1, and the freshman pair of Kendall Winters and Brooklyn Rupert followed that up with a 6-0 victory at No. 2 doubles.
Sluymer dominated at No. 1 singles for a 6-0, 6-1 victory, while sophomore Brighid Cantwell rode her dominating serve to a 6-2, 6-0 win at No. 2 singles.
Senior Kayla Tryanski got the win at No. 3 singles 6-1, 6-2 and with the win secure, sophomore Merel Hoekstra played a pro-set to eight and got the win 8-0.
This was Shippensburg’s first shutout win since April 2, 2016 against Cheyney University.
The Raiders will look to put together a winning streak when they return to the court on Tuesday at 3 p.m. to take on West Chester University.
