After recently helping the Adelphi University women’s tennis team to a 3-0 week, freshman Samantha Perri earned Northeast-10 Co-Rookie of the Week honor. Perri shared the week’s honor with Paige Benoit of Assumption College.
Perri went 5-0 in three team wins for Adelphi last week, first recording a 6-0, 6-0 double bagel of AIC’s Whitney McKay at No. 4 singles in a 6-0 Adelphi win on Wednesday. She was a key performer in two tight conference wins for the Panthers against Merrimack and SNHU over the weekend; the Floral Park native teamed with Elizabeth Kallenberg to win 8-1 at No. 2 doubles against the Warriors on Friday, and later rallied from a set down at No. 5 singles for a 4-6, 6-2, 6-3 victory to clinch Adelphi’s 5-4 win vs. Merrimack. She completed her perfect week against SNHU with two more wins, again teaming with Kallenberg for an 8-4 win at No. 2 doubles and posting a 6-4, 6-2 win at No. 5 singles.
