VESTAL, N.Y. -- Binghamton men's tennis had a strong showing at the Army Invitational, winning two singles flights and fairing well against Ivy League member Yale, St. Bonaventure and the host Knights.
Senior Faisal Mohamed (Lynbrook, N.Y.) captured the Flight 2 singles title with a 3-0 record. Mohamed posted wins over Jeff Dawson from Yale, 7-6, 6-4, Diego Valdenegro of St. Bonaventure, 4-6, 7-5, 10-8, and Eddie Kang of Army, 4-6, 6-0, 6-0.
Freshman Andreas Danielsson (Onsala, Sweden) also went 3-0 to claim the singles crown in Flight 8. He won two matches at that flight and moved up to post another win in the sixth singles flight.
Junior Sebastian Dietz (Leun, Germany) won two of three matches in the top singles flight. His only defeat came in a super tie-break against Michael Caldwell of Yale, 7-5, 2-6, 10-8.
Dietz and Mohamed won two of three matches at the top doubles spot. Their lone loss was a narrow 9-8 setback against the No. 1 team from Yale.
I was pleased with the overall energy and competitiveness of our team this weekend," head coach Adam Cohen said. "We were within just a few points of claiming all of the top 4 singles flights this weekend. Faisal (Mohamed) and Andreas (Danielsson) both played great winning all of their respective matches within their flights (#2 and #*8). I believe this weekend served as a good warm-up to the ITA regionals for Sebastian, Faisal, and Moshe (Levy)."
Dietz received a seed for the upcoming ITA Regional, which will be hosted by Princeton on October 18-23. He and Mohamed will also be seeded in the doubles draw. Mohamed will compete in the singles, and sophomore Moshe Levy (Ra'ananna, Israel) is hoping to play his way into the main draw. Levy opens qualifying play on Thursday and needs to win twice to advance.
