Immediate Release: May 15, 2010
The singles point was the first BU has recorded in six NCAA appearances and the Bearcats were ahead in the remaining two singles matches, meaning the team score might've played out to be a much-tighter 4-3 decision.
"Our guys fought their tails off on every court," head coach Adam Cohen said. "We had a chance to win four first-sets, which would've helped put some pressure on Georgia Tech. But we were only able to get three of those sets. They're a good team. It was a great season and we're looking forward to having just about everybody back. Moshe (Levy) will be missed. He had a great career for us and played exceptionally well in doubles today."
Junior Arnav Jain completed a remarkable season with the historic win at fifth singles. He rolled to a 7-6, 6-0 victrory over Magin Ortiga to cap an undefeated dual meet season. Jain, the team co-MVP, finished with a perfect 24-0 dual record and a team-best 35-3 overall mark. He joins former Division III standout Greg Munoz (17-0 in 1988-89) as the only players in the program's 64-year history to produce an undefeated dual season.
Junior Sven Vloedgraven showed his prowess by winning the opening set against the No. 4 player in the country, Guillermo Gomez, 6-4. Vloedgraven, ranked No. 123, will conclude his brilliant junior season at the NCAA Singles Championship, beginning May 26 in Athens, Georgia.
Haggai also captured the first set in his singles match - a hard-fought 7-6 tiebreaker that went to Haggai, 15-13.
The Bearcats return five of their six singles starters for the 2010-11 season.
No. 24 Georgia Tech 4, No. 47 Binghamton 1
