CASTLETON, Vt. – Led by nine all-around dominant performances across singles and doubles play, the Castleton University women's tennis team defeated the Northern Vermont University-Lyndon Hornets, 9-0, on Saturday afternoon at the Castleton Courts.
Joining the majority of Castleton's athletic programs in switching to a new conference for 2018 – the Little East – the women's tennis team retained familiar foe Lyndon and continued its recent success against the Hornets.
Starting off with doubles action, the second and third flights of Emily Miller and Grace Sharkey as well as Alexis Curley and Megan Hunt, respectively, earned clean sweeps. The duos rolled to 8-0 victories, facing very little resistance.
Continuing to singles action, the Spartans dropped just four games combined through six matches. Megan Nadler – the 2017 team MVP and First-Team All-Conference member – started out her 2018 campaign with a comprehensive 6-1, 6-1 victory.
The second, fourth and sixth flights of singles – Kirsten Kruk, Becca Corsette and Alexis Curley, respectively – notched 6-0, 6-0 wins. Meanwhile, in third and fifth singles, Emily Miller and Megan Hunt produced identical score lines, winning 6-0, 6-1.
Women's tennis will return to action at 6 p.m. on Wednesday as it travels to Plattsburgh, N.Y. to take on the host Cardinals in a nonconference contest. In 2017, the two teams met at Grand Slam Tennis in Rutland, Vt. and Plattsburgh earned the 6-3 decision.
