Women’s Tennis Comes Up Short Against UMBC 5-2

Contact: Mike Porter (

Apalachin, NY—Binghamton University women’s tennis fell to visiting UMBC Saturday afternoon at nearby Tioga Hills Elementary. The Bearcats (7-12) produced a pair of singles wins from freshman Katherine Medianik and senior Emma Leibowicz .

After an 8-2 opening loss at no. 1 doubles, Binghamton bounced back as the duo of senior Emma Leibowicz and freshman Taylor Hollander righted the ship with an 8-5 victory. Following the win, freshman Missy Edelblum and senior Jillian Santos’ attempt at snatching the first team point came up just short as they fell in a marathon heartbreaker 9-8 (7-5).

Visiting UMBC sealed the match with three consecutive singles victories as they improve to 14-7 on the season and a perfect 3-0 vs. America East opponents. Medianik picked up a victory in long winded fashion as she outlasted UMBC’s Isabel Aldinate 7-6 (7-3), 7-6 (7-4). Leibowicz, who was also victorious in doubles action, picked up her 46th career victory with a 6-3, 4-6, 10-8 triumph.

Binghamton plays a pair of matches next weekend when they travel to Hartford to play the host Hawks and Stony Brook to finish out the regular season.
