Vestal, NY—The Binghamton women’s tennis team completed a 2-0 weekend by defeating Albany 5-2 on Sunday afternoon from the Bearcats Sports Complex. The Bearcats won five of six singles matches over the Great Danes, improving to 7-9 this season.
After being swept in doubles play, Binghamton rallied with a dominant performance in singles competition. All five victories for the Bearcats were won in straight sets as they moved to 3-0 against America East opponents in 2014.
Freshman Annie DiMuro bounced back form a loss on Saturday to secure a 6-2,6-1 win at sixth singles over Cathryn Crummey. The win gives her 17 total this season in singles, tying her with sophomore teammate Sara Kohtz who nearly blanked her opponent at 6-0, 6-1 on Sunday.
With the score now even at 2-2, sophomore Shea Brodsky stepped up to win in straight sets from the fourth spot in BU’s lineup. Brodsky has won four straight matches and six of her last eight.
The Bearcats wrapped up the match with wins from their top two spots, including a victory at No. 1 singles from junior Katya Medianik. Medianik edged Cheryl Kukkonen to grab her seventh dual victory of the season.
BU will wrap up regular season play on Friday from Stony Brook when they take on the Seawolves and Hartford in back-to-back action. Friday’s two dual matches are a tune up for the upcoming America East Championships held in Baltimore on April 25-27.
