WESTON, Mass. – The Gordon College women's tennis team notched its second straight win on Friday afternoon with a 9-0 victory over Wentworth Institute of Technology in Commonwealth Coast Conference action.

The match began on Wednesday afternoon at Eastern Nazarene College before a thunderstorm raced through the area at the conclusion of doubles play where the Fighting Scots led, 3-0. Play was suspended due to the inclement weather and was resumed this afternoon at Regis College.

Sophomore Abbie Denney (Peoria, Ariz.) and sophomore Justine Hanson (Meadow Vista, Calif.) took an 8-1 decision over juniors Caitlyn Briggs (Lee, Mass.) and Sam Webb (Duxbury, Mass.) at No. 1 before the match was halted due to weather.

When the match resumed, Hall defeated Jodoin, 6-1, 6-0, at No.3 and Denney clinched the win with a 6-4, 6-0 win over Briggs at No. 1.
