BU men's tennis player Levy wins title at Cornell Invitational

Final Brackets

ITHACA, N.Y. -- Binghamton men's tennis junior Moshe Levy captured the "A" singles title at the Cornell Indoor Invitational, held over the weekend at the Reis Tennis Center. The event concluded the fall season for the Bearcats.

Levy won all five of his matches in straight sets to claim the championship. He knocked off back-to-back Cornell players in the semifinals and finals. In the semis, Levy posted a 6-3, 6-4 win over Josh Goldstien. He then defeated Jeremy Feldman, 7-6 (3), 6-3 in the final.

Levy finished the fall campaign with a 10-3 singles record.

Freshman Gilbert Wong went 5-1 to capture the "B" consolation bracket. After losing a tough second-round "A" singles match to Cornell's Feldman (2-6, 6-3, 10-7), Wong was placed in the "B" backdraw, where he rattled off four straight-set victories. Wong finished his fall season with a 14-4 mark.

In doubles, Wong and sophoore Sven Vloedgraven advanced to the "A" semifinals with a pair of wins. Vloedgraven also won twice in singles.

"Moshe played great tennis this weekend," head coach Adam Cohen said. "To go through the tournament without dropping a set is an accomplishment in itself. Gilbert and Sven also had strong showings in both singles and doubles this weekend. We started our fall season with Gilbert winning an event at the University of Virginia and to complete the fall season with another individual singles crown makes for a nice ending to our fall campaign."

Binghamton returns to action on January 31 when Villanova comes to town.
