NEWPORT, R.I. - Salve Regina University athletics resumes its summer series with a daily flashback to the top five moments of 2016-17 for each of its 19 varsity sports. Beginning with Memorial Day (Monday, May 29, 2017) and finishing with the final day of August, 95 moments (19 x 5) will be shared to relive the most exciting happenings of the most recent Seahawk season.
For the second straight season, Salve Regina men's and women's tennis hosted Johnson and Wales University for 18 matches on the six campus courts. Salve Regina's Will Masse (Wyoming, R.I.) spoiled the Wildcats' shutout bid with a three-set triumph at second singles over Nicholas Auffret. Another spoiler alert? Salve Regina women's tennis will feature a similar flashback tomorrow.
"What tremendous energy today! It was so fun to see all the parents, student fans, and staff come out to support the team. It was rewarding to look around the courts and see how everyone's game has improved. There is still work to be done but it's nice to see when the hard work pays off. Go Seahawks!" - Seahawk head coach Peter Torgrimson
