Cardinals blanked again in tennis


---- — SCHENECTADY — The Plattsburgh State women’s tennis team had its woes continue as the Cardinals suffered a 9-0 sweep at the hands of Union College in a non-conference match Sunday afternoon.

Plattsburgh dropped to 1-5 on the year with the loss while Union improves to 3-1.

The Cardinals found themselves overpowered in doubles action.

Union’s Mina Hsia and Natalia Pronchick defeated Emily Carlin and Kaitlyn Healy, 8-0, at No. 1 doubles. Janel Weaver and Ally Demeter lost to Margaret Oppenheim and Hayley Lough at No. 3 doubles by the same score. Plattsburgh State’s Meghan Ryan and Jacqueline Ciriello were the Cardinal pair to tally a point in doubles despite an 8-1 loss to Union’s Samantha Muratori and Kathryn Collins at No. 2 doubles.

At No. 1 singles against Pronchick, Carlin took the first set to a tiebreaker but eventually fell by a score of 7-6(3), 6-2. The Dutchwomen dominated in the remaining singles matches en route to the sweep of the Cardinals.
