2013 Fall Schedule

Contact: John Hartrick (

VESTAL, N.Y. - Reigning America East champion Binghamton men’s tennis sat most of its returning veterans but showcased several newcomers at the team’s season-opening non-scoring hidden dual Saturday and Sunday with Bryant and Niagara at the Bearcats Sports Complex. The three teams played their singles matches on Saturday and wwrapped up the event with doubles play on Sunday.

Freshman Vihar Shah dropped just two total games in his pair of straight-set victories. He also won both of his doubles matches Sunday with partner Doug Notaris.

“It was a good weekend of tennis for our guys,” head coach Adam Cohen said. “We got to see a lot of our new players compete in both singles and doubles and now have a better idea of what we need to work on moving forward this fall.”
