Women's Tennis Falls To Plattsburgh On The Road

PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. – Falling for the first time in 2018, the Castleton University women's tennis team dropped a 9-0 decision at Plattsburgh on Wednesday evening at the Field House Tennis Courts.

Castleton falls to 1-1 on the season after dropping the nonconference match, while Plattsburgh improves to 3-0 on the year.

The host Cardinals were on fire from the start and quickly raced to a 3-0 lead, earning all three available points in doubles. Castleton's first and third doubles teams put up the most resistance as Megan Nadler and Kirsten Kruk, as well as Alexis Curley and Megan Hunt, held three games (8-3).

In singles play, Becca Corsette was the only Spartan athlete to take a set. The freshman started out with all of the momenta, taking the opener 6-2 before dropping the second set 6-3. In the deciding stanza, a super tiebreak, the Cardinal came out on top 10-6.

Women's tennis returns to action at 1 p.m. on Sunday as it hosts Northern Vermont University-Johnson in a nonconference battle at the Castleton Courts.
