Perkins Tabbed for Northeast-10 Women’s Tennis All-Rookie Team

SOUTH EASTON, Mass. – Freshman Jess Perkins (Shrewsbury, Mass.) of the Saint Anselm College women's tennis team was chosen for the Northeast-10 All-Rookie Team, the league office announced Wednesday morning.

Perkins played all 12 of her singles matches in the No. 1 spot for the Hawks this season and produced a record of 9-3. She settled in as the season wore on and won her final five matches as part of a stretch in which she triumphed in nine of 10 overall. During the five-match winning streak to close out the year, Perkins only faltered in six total games.

Perkins, who was selected as the Northeast-10 Rookie of the Week on Oct. 7, also scooped up five more wins at No. 1 doubles with her partner and classmate Ashley Sulkin (Ipswich, Mass.) – the highest number of victories for any Saint Anselm doubles tandem.
