Vestal, NY—The Binghamton University women’s tennis program has added five new players to the roster for the upcoming 2012-13 season. After losing three decorated seniors to graduation this past year, third year head coach Libby McGovern is confident that this group of four incoming freshmen and one transfer are prime to step in and help fill the void.
“I’m very pleased with the girls we have entering our program this year,” McGovern said. “It’s a talented bunch that has a bright future ahead of them, not only for this upcoming season but for years to come.”
