VESTAL, N.Y.—After yet another championship season that culminated with an NCAA berth, Binghamton men’s tennis has earned a top-10 regional ranking.

The Bearcats were positioned ninth in the year-end ITA Northeast Rankings. It’s the fifth consecutive year that BU has received a top-10 spot. The first eight team positions were held down by members of the Ivy League, headed by top-ranked Harvard.

Additionally, freshman sensation Sid Hazarika was ranked 13th in singles in the Northeast. Hazarika, the region’s Rookie of the Year, put together an exceptional spring season after coming to campus in January. He went 21-4 in singles primarily at the No. 1 position. Hazarika was named the America East Player of the Year and Rookie of the Year. He is the top freshman in the regional rankings, which are predominantly held by seniors.

Adam Cohen, the ITA Northeast Coach of the Year, led the Bearcats to a 16-win campaign that produced the program’s sixth straight America East crown. The team then capped its spring with a trip to Athens, Ga. and an NCAA first-round match against the No. 2 Bulldogs.

Binghamton has advanced to the NCAA tournament nine times in the last 11 years.
