WINCHESTER, Va. - The Shenandoah University women's tennis team celebrated its return to the court with a 7-2 victory over Shippensburg Saturday night in its season opener.
The Hornets (1-0) won the season opener in strong fashion over the Division II Red Raiders (0-6).
Shenandoah then clinched the match with victories in the top four singles matches.
Wong dominated Kat Werner at No. 1 winning 6-1, 6-1 before Allin took out Cassie Sidone 6-2, 6-3 at No. 2.
Green evened her record at 1-1 on the night with a 6-1, 6-0 victory at No. 3 to give SU the required five points to clinch.
Brewster matched Green with a 6-1, 6-0 victory at No. 4 and Gross provided the final margin with a 6-1, 6-1 triumph at No. 6.
The Hornets are now off until February 18 when they host Hood in another non-conference match held on the indoor courts at Winchester Country Club.
