Little East honor for PSU Women’s Tennis freshman

Lund represents Panthers as Rookie of the Week

            PLYMOUTH, N.H. – A freshman on the Plymouth State University women's tennis team was honored by the Little East Conference Monday for her performance in the Panthers' season-opening victory last weekend.

            Freshman Nikki Lund (Hingham, Mass./Hingham) was selected the LEC Women's Tennis Rookie of the Week.  It is the first round of LEC weekly recognition this season.

            A 5'8" freshman, Lund won both of her matches last Saturday to help PSU to a 5-4 Little East victory over the University of Southern Maine in the Panthers' season opener.  She started the day with an 8-2 win at No. 2 doubles with senior Chelsea Thibeault (Manchester, N.H./Central), and followed with a perfect 6-0, 6-0 victory at No. 4 singles in her collegiate debut.

            The Panthers, 1-0, will play their next three matches on the road, beginning this Wednesday at Colby-Sawyer College (4:00 p.m.)
