NEW HAVEN, Conn.-- The Suffolk women’s tennis team remained unbeaten on the young season by posting a 9-0 Great Northeast Athletic Conference dual-match victory over Albertus Magnus Saturday afternoon.
The visiting Rams (3-0, 2-0 Great Northeast) dropped only eight total games on the day, winning four of the six singles matches and two of the three doubles contests without dropping a game. Juniors Kellie Sturma (Newman, Ga.) and Stephanie Nasr (Westwood, Mass.), sophomores Kaitlynn Cates (Middlebury, Conn.) and Catarina Rosa (Fall River, Mass.) and freshmen Alex Hernandez (Newton, Mass.) and Cori Kurner (Meriden, Conn.) each posted a pair of wins for Suffolk, as the tandems of Sturma/Cates and Hernandez/Rosa each notched 8-0 triumphs at numbers one and two doubles, respectively, while Nasr and Kurner teamed up for an 8-3 win at number three doubles.
The host Falcons drop to 0-4 overall and 0-2 in Great Northeast play with the setback.
Suffolk heads across town on Thursday afternoon to take on Wentworth in a non-league dual-match that begins at 3:30 p.m., while Albertus Magnus hosts Newbury in a non-league dual-match on Monday afternoon that also begins at 3:30 p.m.
