Kohtz and DiMuro Win Singles Flight At Brown Invite

Sophomore Sara Kohtz

PROVIDENCE, R.I.—Sophomore Sara Kohtz and freshman Annie DiMuro were victorious on Sunday morning, sweeping their respective singles flight championships at the Brown Invite. The pair of underclassmen were the only Binghamton players competing on the final day of the tournament—sophomore Shea Brodsky received a default in the consolation final of her singles flight.

Kohtz took down junior Lindsay Balsamo of Rutgers in straight sets 6-1, 6-1 in the singles final of the black flight. With her 3-0 weekend, Kohtz moves to 4-1 in 2013 and 19-13 overall in singles play.

DiMuro followed suit with a 6-1 win in the first set over Rutgers freshman Farris Cunningham in the Blue singles flight. Cunningham was forced to retire during the match due to injury, giving the first-year player from Chester, NJ the blue flight crown.

Binghamton will have a long break before their next competition, October 11-13 at the USTA National Tennis Center Invitational.
