ST. JOHNSBURY, Vt. – The Husson University women's tennis team defeated Lyndon State College 9-0 in North Eastern Atlantic Conference East play Sunday morning at the St. Johnsbury Academy Field House.

Husson (3-1, 2-1 NEAC-East) started off 3-0 after doubles with Meridith Blessard and Katie Pratt taking the top flight 8-1 over Lyndon State's (0-7, 0-3 NEAC-East) Carina Alden and Nichole Jones.  Sarah Smith and Charlotte Bednarz earned an 8-4 win in the second flight over Alexa Richard and Samantha Fisher.  Kelsey Pelletier and Marisa Brown rounded out doubles action with an 8-0 win over Phoebe Achinda and Haley Bouley.
