Ithaca, N.Y.—Binghamton (4-7) fell short on the road at Cornell, losing to the Big Red 4-3 on Saturday afternoon from Reis Tennis Center. The Ivy League school won the decisive match at second singles and improved to 6-3 on the season with the victory.
Sophomore Agatha Ambrozy racked up two more wins on Saturday, winning at second doubles and fifth singles for Binghamton. The reigning America East Player of the Week teamed with freshman Annie DiMuro for an 8-4 doubles win and won in straight sets over Cornell’s Christy Kung.
Fellow sophomores Alexis Tashiro and Shea Brodsky also registered wins for the Bearcats. Tashiro defeated junior Lauren Frazier 6-4, 6-2 at third singles to improve to 5-6 overall in duals this season.
Brodsky, who played out of the sixth spot today, won a tightly contested match over Kristin Quill. The Miami Beach, Fla. native won 7-5, 6-4 and is now 3-1 in dual matches playing from sixth singles.
Marika Cusick won what would be the match-deciding point on Saturday, defeating DiMuro in a hard fought three-setter. The loss snaps DiMuro’s seven-match winning streak which began on Feb. 23 against Fordham.
BU has a quick turnaround as they take on Boston University on Sunday morning. The Terriers, a former member of the America East, are 7-6 overall this season. The match is set for 11 a.m. in Boston at the BU Track and Tennis Center.
