PLYMOUTH, N.H. - Endicott College opened its women's tennis season Thursday afternoon with an easy 9-0 non-conference victory over Plymouth State University in PSU's home opener at the P.E. Center Courts.
The Gulls rolled through the three doubles matches, dropping only five games in the three eight-game pro-sets, and cruised home with the sweep by winning all six singles matches, including five in straight sets.
Freshman Kate Cioffi (Essex, Vt.) and sophomore Nicole Breting (Woonsocket, R.I.) led the way for the Gulls. Cioffi was an easy winner at No. 1 singles after teaming with junior Alyson Boehm (Lowell, Mass.) for a victory at No. 2 doubles, and Breting preceded her victory at No. 2 singles with an 8-0 triumph at No. 1 doubles with junior Lori Wardner (Wrentham, Mass.)
Wardner and Boehm were also singles winners at No. 3 and No. 4, respectively. Seniors Kate Fiske (Westerly, R.I.) and Jenna Carme (Greenfield, Mass.) also were double winners on the afternoon, taking matches at No. 5 and No. 6 singles and joining together for the win at No. 3 doubles.
PSU, 0-1, is home again on Saturday for its Little East Conference opener against the University of Southern Maine (2:00 p.m.), while Endicott, 1-0, returns home to host Regis College in the home opener and the first Commonwealth Coast Conference match (12:00 p.m.)
