PROVIDENCE, R.I.--  Junior Kellie Sturma (Newman, Ga.) and sophomore Kaitlynn Cates (Middlebury, Conn.) posted straight set singles victories and combined for a doubles triumph as Suffolk remained unbeaten by notching a 5-2 non-league college women’s tennis dual-match victory over Rhode Island College Wednesday afternoon on the RIC Courts.

Sophomore Catarina Rosa (Fall River, Mass.) and freshman Rachael Troia (North Providence, R.I.) added straight set singles wins as well for the visiting Rams, who improve to 10-0 overall, as the final two doubles matches of the day were not played due to darkness.

Sophomore Jaclyn Eastman (Mansfield, Mass.) and freshman Elizabeth O’Connell (Harrisville, R.I.) posted straight set singles victories in the setback for the host Anchorwomen, who fall to 9-3 overall.
