Sea Gulls win five matches against three different teams; women still undefeated

SALISBURY, Md. – The weather may have been brisk on Saturday, but the Salisbury University men's and women's tennis teams were heating up the court—going undefeated in four of their five matches—to improve their overall records and gain valuable match experience.

The women's team (3-0, 2-0 Capital Athletic Conference) played two matches, against CAC opponents Wesley College and York (Pa.) College, cruising to 9-0 victories against both teams. Senior Amy Matonak, junior Amy Worthington, and freshmen Charlotte Urian and Allison Chamberlain all took the court for the first time this season, and earning resounding victories.

The 23rd-ranked men's squad (4-2, 2-0 CAC) also squared off against Wesley and York, winning by scores of 8-1 and 9-0, respectively, but also faced Virginia Wesleyan College to finish off the day; the result of that final match was just as successful for the maroon and gold, as the team earned its second 9-0 win of the day.

Seniors Arthur JacksonEvan Clifton and Kyle Schneck, along with freshmen Sam LandsetJustin Tomchick and Paul Berryman, also opened up their 2011 seasons with solid wins.

The Sea Gulls now migrate to warmer weather for their next several matches, traveling to Claremont, Calif., on March 21.
