SALISBURY, Md. - It was a strong start to the Salisbury University women's tennis Capital Athletic Conference schedule as the Sea Gulls defeated St. Mary's (Md.) College 9-0 on Sunday afternoon at the SU outdoor courts before a crowd of 108.
This was the first time the Sea Gulls (2-2, 1-0 CAC) have competed outdoors at home this season as cold weather has kept Salisbury inside thus far. This was also Salisbury's third match in as many days.
Junior Anna Marie Kable defeated Sarah Weisse 6-0, 6-1 at No. 1 singles. The Seahawks (2-5, 0-1 CAC) had their best chance for a point in No. 2 singles as Michelle Compton only lost 6-1, 6-3 to Kelly Fahrner. Sophomore Rachel Iosue, junior Robyn Wendell and sophomore Kristen King won 6-0, 6-0 at No. 3, No. 4 and No. 6 singles. Junior Hannah Parsons defeated Erin Marzoli 6-1, 6-1 at No. 5 singles for the Sea Gulls.
In doubles, the No. 1 pair of Kable/Iosue defeated Weisse/Compton, 8-6. Salisbury's No. 2 and No. 3 doubles teams of Parsons/Wendell and Fahrner/King, respectively, won 8-0 over the Seahawks.
