Talya Pessolano Providence, R.I. -- October 7, 2010 -- Amy Shaw, Kyla Walgren, Erin Woodbury, and Kristi Maltz all produced wins in singles and doubles play to lead their Springfield College women's team to a 9-0 victory at Rhode Island College today at the RIC Tennis Courts.

The Anchorwomen fall to 0-11.

Shaw, a senior co-captain from Walpole, Mass., paired with classmate and fellow co-captain Walgren (West Hartford, CT), for an 8-0 shutout win at the top doubles spot, and that set the tone for the match. At No. 2 doubles, it was the pairing of sophomores Erin Woodbury (Yarmouth, Me.) and Siana Green (Pomfret, Conn.) winning 8-1. Then at No. 3 doubles, it was the duo of seniors Kristi Maltz (Waterford, Conn.) and Talya Pessolano (Springfield, Mass.), coming through by a score of 8-3.

Singles winners for the Pride included Shaw, sophomore Sam Carney (Franklin, Mass.), Walgren, Woodbury, sophomore Vanessa Senecal (Seekonk, Mass.), and Maltz. All won their matches in straight sets.
