PLYMOUTH, N.H. - The Plymouth State College women's tennis team improved its record to 2-1 Monday with a 9-0 whitewash of Salem State College.

The Panthers swept all three eight-game pro-sets in doubles, then took five of the six singles matches in straight sets. The only match to go to a third set was the No. 1 singles contest, where PSC sophomore Cally Thorup (Cumberland, Maine) came from down a set to prevail, 4-6, 6-3, 6-4.

The rest of PSC's singles winners included junior Jamie Hazard (Foster, R.I.) at No. 2, junior Sarah Kasuba (Stratford, Conn.) at No. 3, sophomore Katie Olsen (Reading, Mass.) at No. 4, sophomore Lindsay Coletti (Hudson, Mass.) at No. 5, and sophomore Molly Barnaby (Portsmouth, N.H.) at No. 6. Kasuba leads the team with a perfect 3-0 record in singles.

The Panther winners in doubles included Thorup and Hazard at No. 1, Kasuba and Olsen at No. 2, and sophomore Holly Mills (Reading, Mass.) and freshman Kelley Sheehan (Newburyport, Mass.) at No. 3.
