HOOKSETT, N.H. – The 2019-’20 Queen City Cup is underway and the first win goes to the Penmen.

Southern New Hampshire University defeated Saint Anselm College 7-0 in women’s tennis on Tuesday, marking the 11th time in 12 years that SNHU has opened its season with a win.

Junior Maikah Bulpitt (Cumberland, R.I.) came the closest to a singles win for Saint Anselm, falling 6-4,6-2 to freshman Mina Houge (Oslo, Norway).

In doubles play, SNHU dropped only four games in their three matchups.

The two women’s tennis teams will not meet again until next season, giving SNHU the first two points in this year’s Queen Cup, the yearly competition between the two Manchester-area college teams for local collegiate sports dominance. The 2018-’19 edition of the Queens Cup ended in a 19-19 tie.

Saint Anselm hosts Le Moyne this Saturday, Sept. 21 at 2 p.m.

The Penmen return to action Saturday, Sept. 21 (3 p.m.) when they play host to American International College.
