BROWN POSTS SINGLES WIN IN LOSSES TO NICHOLS AND ASSUMPTION

Dudley, MA-Freshman Chelsea Brown (Wallingford, CT) was the lone bright spot for the Rhode Island College women's tennis team as the Anchorwomen lost, 9-0, to Nichols and, 8-1, to Assumption, at a tri-match played at NC's Francis W. Robinson Courts on Saturday afternoon.

 

After being shutout in their opener against the Bison, Brown  picked up the Anchorwomen’s (0-4) lone point on the day, rallying to best freshman Chrissy Lyons (Holden, MA) of Assumption at No. 1 singles in a third set tiebreak, 1-6, 6-4, 1-0 (10-6) for her first collegiate individual win. Brown and senior Gabriela Batek (Greenville, RI) gave chase to the Bison’s Jillian McQuiggan (Weymouth, MA) and Chelsey Miller (Salem, CT) at second doubles, but the host team prevailed with an 8-5 victory in the day’s opening action.

 

In upcoming action, Rhode Island College will host Johnson & Wales on Tuesday, Sept. 13 at 4 p.m.
