SU women's tennis goes 2-1 in California

CLAREMONT, Calif. - The Salisbury University women's tennis team wrapped up its spring break trip with a 2-1 mark out in Claremont, Calif. The Sea Gulls (4-4) won their first two matches against Colorado College and Caltech by identical 8-1 scores. Those two wins extended Salisbury's win streak to four straight. The streak was short lived as Salisbury lost 8-1 to No. 8 University of the South on Tuesday afternoon.

Salisbury's No. 2 doubles team of freshman Jackie Burr and sophomore Anna Marie Kable were the only team to go a perfect 3-0 during the trip west. Burr and Kable defeated Jordan Casey and Molly Willet 8-3 to secure the only point against the nationally ranked University of the South.

In the first two matches against Colorado College on Sunday and Caltech on Monday the Sea Gulls won their points in straight sets. The only losses came at No. 1 singles where senior Erika Mitry lost to Colorado College's Kelsey Smith 7-5, 6-2 and Caltech's Chen Yee Liaw 6-0, 6-0.

Mitry rebounded in doubles where she paired with teammate Jenny Rosler to defeat the No. 1 doubles for Colorado College and Caltech. SU's doubles teams went a combined 6-0 against Colorado College and Caltech.

Salisbury returns to action next Wednesday, March 28, when they travel to Capital Athletic Conference foe St. Mary's (Md.) College.
