Simmons Tennis swept Albertus Magnus, 9-0, and Emerson College, 8-1, in a Great Northeast Athletic Conference doubleheader on Sunday. Both games were rescheduled due to rain earlier in the season. With the win, the Sharks improve to 8-4 overall and a perfect 6-0 GNAC mark.
Freshman Sabrina Salmela (Beverly, Mass.) improved to 4-0 in #1 singles on the week, and earned her fourth GNAC Rookie of the Week honor of the season after defeating three GNAC opponents (JWU, Albertus, Emerson) and a NEWMAC opponent from Mount Holyoke.
The Simmons victories on Sunday were a complete team effort, as all ten players found their way into the win column. Salmela and junior Maile Macleod (Carlsbad, Calif.) won the last five games at #1 doubles for an 8-5 victory vs. Emerson.
Tennis will travel to Suffolk on Wednesday, October 7 for a 6:30pm conference match.
