Frostburg, Md. ...
The Frostburg State University women’s tennis team opened their 2001 season with a 6-3 win over Waynesburg College in a non-conference match at the Cordts Center Tennis Complex, giving head coach Gene Cutter his first career victory at head coach.
FSU led 2-1 after completion of doubles action. Freshmen Kirsten Getz and Kim Reidler, both former standouts at Beall High School, turned in an 8-0 win over Heather Bragg and Corey Cooper at the No. 2 flight, while senior Kathy Arnold and junior Dana Braskey, both Northern Garrett products, downed Erica Rush and Amy Sigmund, 8-3, at the third spot.
The Bobcats then won four of the six singles matches to close out the victory. Getz swept Jill Deyarmin, 6-1, 6-2, at the No. 2 singles flight to get the ball rolling, and senior Becky Allnutt followed with a 6-3, 6-1 win over Jill Latsha at the third spot.
Reidler turned in a 6-4, 6-3 win over Libby Abramovich at the fourth position, and Arnold sealed the day with a 6-2, 7-5 victory against Sarah Pingley at the No. 5 flight.
"The team really impressed me with not only their attitude, but their fighting spirit," said Cutter. "If this is any indication of how the team will continue to perform, I believe we'll be in contention to win the conference this year."
The Bobcats (1-0) return to the courts on Saturday, September 8 in their AMCC opener versus the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg at 3:00 p.m.
