Women’s Tennis Finishes Play At USTA Invite

FLUSHING MEADOWS, N.Y.—The Binghamton women’s tennis team wrapped up play from the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, competing in the USTA Women’s College Invitational this past weekend. Overall, Binghamton accumulated a record of 4-11 in singles play and managed one doubles victory in their two days of competition.

BU earned victories from freshman Annie DiMuro, sophomores Sara Kohtz, Alexis Tashiro and Shea Brodsky. DiMuro authored a win in consolation play of the B flight, taking down Maria Clara Bernardez of Providence in three sets, 4-6, 6-0, 10-4. She has five singles victories in fall tournament play. Kohtz earned her team-leading fifth win of the tournament season, beating Rocio Portela of Seton Hall, 6-4, 6-3. Both of her losses over the weekend came in lengthy three set battles where she lost narrowly; 12-10 and 15-13, respectively.

Sophomores Alexis Tashiro and Shea Brodsky both went 1-2 in Flushing Meadows. Tashiro notched an easy 6-2, 6-3 win over Anika Novacek of Fordham, while Brodsky took down Giulia Leone of Hofstra in the first round of the E Flight consolation bracket.

Up next for Binghamton is a trip to the ITA Regional tournament hosted by Harvard. Action will begin on Thursday, October 17 and will carry out over the weekend.
