Cambridge, Mass— Five players on the Binghamton women’s tennis team were named as all-conference singles picks on Thursday afternoon as announced by the America East. Both Sara Kohtz and Alexis Tashiro earned first team honors to headline the group.
Kohtz, a sophomore from Chicago, registered an 18-11 overall record, including a 9-5 mark in dual competition. She went a combined 9-3 from second and third singles this season and also picked up her first career win at top singles for the Bearcats. This is the second all-conference honor for Kohtz.
Tashiro also earned her second all-conference nod with the first team selection. A native of Jamaica, NY, Tashiro performed solidly at the top of BU’s lineup. She played in positions 1-3 this season for head coach Libby McGovern and accumulated a dual record of 7-10. The sophomore was one of three players to pick up wins in their AE semifinals match against NJIT.
Three more players garnered second team all-conference honors for Binghamton on Thursday. For the second consecutive season, Katya Medianik made one of the top-12 singles spots. Medianik, a two-year captain, compiled an overall record of 11-18 this season and played in every singles spot in BU’s lineup. She went 7-10 in duals and had a streak earlier in the season winning 4-of-5 matches played.
Freshman Annie DiMuro joins Medianik on the second team as well. DiMuro had a stellar first season for the Bearcats, winning a team-high 19 matches. She went 12-6 in dual play and 7-3 from the fourth spot in Binghamton’s lineup. She was honored with America East Player of the Week on two occasions and also led the team with 13 overall doubles wins.
Shea Brodsky rounded out the all-conference singles selections by virtue of going 14-15 overall and 9-8 in duals. Brodsky was terrific down the stretch of the 2014 dual season, collecting a five-match winning streak for the Bearcats.
Binghamton did have one doubles team make the all-conference on Thursday as well. Sophomores Shea Brodsky and Alexis Tashiro were tabbed as second-team selections after going an identical 11-20 this season overall. The duo won six times together in dual play in 2014.
