            PLYMOUTH, N.H.  – Plymouth State University’s women’s tennis team enjoyed a successful afternoon in the final home match of the season Sunday, defeating Castleton State College 9-0 in a non-conference contest at the P.E. Center Courts.

            PSU’s top four players won two matches apiece.  Junior Whitney O’Leary (Sagamore Beach, Mass.) and sophomore Erica Huckins (Holderness, N.H.) teamed up for a win at No.1 doubles and then came through with victories at No. 1 and No. 2 singles, respectively.  Freshman Jill Deyermond (Atkinson, N.H.) and junior Rachel Xavier (Meredith, N.H.) had similar success, teaming up at No. 2 doubles and finishing with triumphs at No. 3 and No. 4 singles, respectively.  Xavier improved her team-leading singles record to 8-1.

            Junior Liz Duell (Hope Valley, R.I.) also collected a pair of victories, teaming with sophomore Ashley Gorman (Cumberland, R.I.) for a win at No. 3 doubles and earning a singles win at No. 6.  PSU’s other win came from junior Sarah Cole (North Waterboro, Maine) at No. 5 singles.

            PSU, which improved to 5-4 with the win, wraps up the regular season next Saturday with a Little East Conference match at Western Connecticut (12:00 p.m.).  Castleton State, 7-3, returns home to host Green Mountain College on Wednesday (4:00 p.m.).
