WATERVILLE, Maine --- The Colby College women's tennis team got to play a rare dual meet doubleheader on Monday and made it count with an 8-1 victory over Simmons College and then a 9-0 blanking of University of Southern Maine.

Katie Muto at first singles and Audrey Jacobsen at the second spot each went to pro sets to decide their matches against Simmons. Muto won 6-1 in the opening set, lost 6-1 in the second set, and then took the 10-3 pro set win over Sabrina Salmela. Meanwhile, Jacobsen also won the first set (6-3), lost the second (6-4), and then won the pro set (10-2) against Maile Macleod.

"Jacobsen recently lost to Macleod at the ITA tourney, but today she was focused and executed a steady and smart game plan," Colby head coach Doanh Wang said. "Muto also played well against a good opponent. Salmela is a four-time GNAC Rookie of the Week in her conference."

Katie Brezinski, Tara Davidson, Sara Wiener, and Mckenzie Love all won in straight sets in singles play for the Mules (2-1) in the win against Simmons. Wiener and Love also won at third doubles, while Kathryn Vergeyle and Sally Meehan took the second doubles match.

Sally Holmes, a first-year player for Colby, won at first singles and joined forces with Caroline Reaves for a win at first doubles against Southern Maine. Reaves, Julie Achenbaum, Anna Zieba, Hilana Bernheimer, and Maddy Jones also won singles matches.

Achenbaum and Zieba took the second doubles match for Colby. Bernheimer teamed with Alex McAuliff for the third doubles win.
