LISA DENERSTEIN '92
Inducted 2000



A native of Setauket, N.Y., Lisa Denerstein played tennis at Binghamton from 1988-92. She earned her bachelor's degree in psychology in 1992.
In her four year career, Denerstein amassed 109 combined singles and doubles wins, and established herself as one of the premier players in the conference and state.
As a senior captain, she became the program's first New York State Champion, capturing the number one singles flight after four match victories. That distinction, combined with a ranking of number six in the East Region, earned Denerstein a berth in the NCAA Division III Championship. Just the second Binghamton player to receive a national tournament invitation in 30 years, Denerstein advanced to the round of 16, and concluded her final year with a 25-7 singles record and national ranking of 24th.
Denerstein began her career at number three singles and number two doubles before moving into the top role for her final three seasons. As a sophomore she was named team MVP, and duplicated that honor as a senior. Within the State University of New York Athletic Conference, she captured five championships - two number one singles titles and three doubles crowns. During her tenure, BU won nearly 70% of its dual matches, claimed four straight SUNYAC crowns, and finished among the top-five at the state tournament each year.
After her final collegiate season in 1992, Denerstein was honored as the University's Foundation Award recipient.
