February 2, 2013Tweet
West Point, N.Y.—After dropping a 6-1 contest to host Army Friday afternoon, Binghamton (1-3) bounced back with an exciting 4-3 victory over Sacred Heart Saturday afternoon at Lichtenberg Tennis Center. With the team score tied at three points apiece and the match balancing in the fold, freshman Agatha Ambrozy pulled out a nail-biting victory at the fifth singles position 6-4,6-7(1-7),7-5; giving Binghamton their first dual match victory of the 2013 season.
Binghamton started Saturday on the right foot, winning all three of their doubles matches. The combination of Ambrozy and sophomore Katherine Medianik highlighted the action, winning 8-4 at the top doubles spot. This duo also picked up a doubles victory on Friday with a 8-5 win over Army.
After the Pioneers picked up the first singles victory, freshman Sara Kohtz put the Bearcats ahead with a quick 6-4, 6-1 victory. Kohtz is 2-2 this season in singles play, playing both at the one and two spot for third year head coach Libby McGovern. Sophomore Missy Edelblum followed up Kohtz’s win with a victory of her own at the sixth spot, beating Sacred Heart’s Alyssa Migliorini 7-5, 6-1.
However, Sacred Heart did not lay down as they won at the first and third singles spots to tie things up at three. After losing a tightly contested second set 7-6 (1-7), Ambrozy pulled through in the third and decisive set with a gutsy 7-5 win. The freshman from St. Petersburg, Florida is 2-2 in the early going for the Bearcats in singles action.
As mentioned earlier, Binghamton was defeated on late Friday afternoon by hosts Army (3-0) 6-1 at Lichtenberg Tennis Center. Kohtz picked up the Bearcats lone point with a 3-6,6-3,4-3(7-4) win. Ambrozy and Medianik were victorious in doubles action for Binghamton as well.
BU wraps up the weekend with a matchup against Seton Hall on Sunday afternoon. Last season, Binghamton beat the Pirates handily 5-2 on the road.
