PSU Women’s Tennis powers past Lyndon State

            LYNDON CENTER, Vt. - The Plymouth State University women's tennis team got back on the winning track Tuesday afternoon with a 6-1 non-conference victory over Lyndon State College.

            The Panthers snapped their three-match losing streak and improved to 3-7 overall, while Lyndon State dropped to 0-6.

            Both teams were shorthanded so there were only four singles matches played.  PSU sophomore Buffy Garland (Freedom, N.H.) moved up to the No. 1 singles spot and earned a victory when her opponent defaulted in the second set, while freshman Lydia Smith (Marblehead, Mass.) earned a victory at No. 2 singles with a win in the third-set super-breaker.  Sophomore Abby Warren (Durham, N.H.) also picked up a win at No. 4 singles, and freshman Kelsey McPherson (Durham, Maine) collected a forfeit victory at No. 5.

            In the only doubles match of the day, Warren and McPherson posted an 8-3 victory.  Ashley Dewhurst (North Conway, N.H.) earned the lone Lyndon State win of the day at No. 3 singles.

            PSU plays a Little East Conference make-up match Thursday at UMass Boston (3:00 p.m. at Boston College High School) and wraps up the regular season Saturday at Western Connecticut.
