Green and White Blanked in Home Opener

YORK, PA – The York College women’s tennis squad fell hard Tuesday afternoon, dropping a 9-0 result to visiting Salisbury in the Spartans’ first home match of the 2010 campaign. The Green and White fall to 1-4 on the season including 0-2 in Capital Athletic Conference play while the Sea Gulls begin their dual match season with a 1-0 mark.

The Spartans’ top effort came from Stephanie Nelson (Marriottsville, Md./Liberty) in the fourth slot as she pushed Rachel Lupinetti to a full three sets. Nelson took the first frame by a 6-4 count before Lupinetti responded with a 6-3 triumph in set #2. The final set saw Lupinetti capture a 10-5 decision to take the #4 singles.

Sophomore Samantha Brenner (Mount Airy, Md./South Carroll) battled at third singles but unfortunately dropped the match 6-3, 6-2 to Salisbury’s Elaina Iosue.

The Green and White return to action on March 16 as they hit the road for Dover, Del. The Spartans are slated to face CAC foe Wesley in a 3:30 p.m. tilt.
