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.
First-year head coach Peter Torgrimson took his team on the road for the first time with only four players, just enough to score in a dual match. The Seahawk four - Abigail Burke (Harwich, Mass.), Priscilla Gaspard (Brockton, Mass.), Anna Godshalk (Orleans, Mass.), and Emma Gruber (New Canaan, Conn.) - combined to win all six matches played - two doubles, four singles - to defeat Curry College, 6-3.
