Binghamton men's tennis trio has solid showing at ITA Regional


PHILADELPHIA, Pa. - Binghamton men's tennis sent three individuals and one doubles tandem to the Wilson/Intercollegiate Tennis Association Northeast Regional, hosted by Penn.

Junior Faisal Mohamed (Lynbrook, N.Y.) had the most success, winning three matches in the consolation bracket. After dropping his opening match to Justin Chow of Columbia (6-3, 6-2), Mohamed won three straight matches before an ankle injury forced him to retire in the consolation semifinals. He defeated Chris Innes of Colgate, 7-6 (4), 7-5 in the first consolation round. Mohamed then stormed back to knock out Michael Kalfayan of Harvard, 2-6, 7-6 (5), 11-9 in the second round. He then posted a 6-4, 6-2 triumph over Youssef Fassi-Fehri of America East rival Stony Brook.

After losing their opening matches, freshmen Moshe Levy (Ra'ananna, Israel) and Pierre Clavel (Ampuis, France) each won a match in the consolation draw as well.

In doubles, Mohamed and Clavel rallied from 5-1 down to post a 9-7 victory over a pair from Stony Brook in the first round. They were then defeated by a team from Georgetown, 8-1, in the second round.

Binghamton will conclude its fall season at the Cornell Fall Invitational on October 27-29.
