Women’s Tennis

Freshman Anastasia Kapothanasis (Westbrook, Maine) provided the difference on Monday as Saint Anselm earned a 4-3 win over Plymouth State University at home.

With Saint Anselm leading by a 3-2 margin, Kapothanasis picked up a 6-3, 6-4 singles win over Megan Marshall (Dartmouth, Mass.) to clinch the team victory and snap a five-match losing streak that stretched back to last season.

Kapothanasis teamed up with Maikah Bulpitt (Cumberland, R.I.) for a doubles win, with Katlin Hughes (Rockland, Mass.) and Emily Jacy (Glastonbury, Conn.) earning wins in doubles and individual wins in singles play.

The Hawks improve to 1-1 on the season following their shutout loss to Assumption on Sunday. Saint Anselm returns to Northeast-10 Conference play on Wednesday, Sept. 11 at 4 p.m. versus Bentley.

Cross Country

While they couldn’t match crosstown rival SNHU, Saint Anselm put up a respectable showing as hosts at the 38th Annual Shacklette Invitational last weekend.

Freshmen Christine Toy (Standish, Maine) and Delaney Flanagan (Bedford, N.H.) tied for third on the women’s side with a 5K time of 19:41.5.

Saint Anselm returns to action Saturday, Sept. 21 at the UMass Dartmouth Invitational. The women’s race will begin at high noon.

Men’s Soccer

Sophomore Michael Budrewicz (Uccle, Belgium) was selected as Northeast-10 Conference Player of the Week for his hat trick against Saint Thomas Aquinas on Saturday.

He is the first Hawk men’s soccer player to earn the honor since Joshua Rocco ’12 accomplished the feat on Oct. 12, 2010.

After the opening week of action, Budrewicz leads the NE-10 in goals and is second in the nation among eligible NCAA Division II players.
