BU men's tennis earns highest-ever regional ranking
Bearcats positioned eighth in Northeast Region by ITA

ITA Northeast Region Rankings

VESTAL, N.Y. -- Binghamton men's tennis has earned the highest regional ranking in its eight-year Division I tenure. The Bearcats were eighth in the final ITA Northeast Regional Rankings - surpassing the position of 12th that the 2005 team achieved.

In addition, sophomore Sven Vloedgraven was ranked No. 15 in singles and junior Moshe Levy was 18th. Vloedgraven, the America East Player of the year, went 26-10 overall, 17-5 in duals. He and freshman Gilbert Wong were ranked No. 13 in doubles.

"One of our team goals was to finish inside the top 10 in the region and to accomplish that means our program is continuing in the right direction," head coach Adam Cohen said.

The Bearcats won 14 matches, captured the America East championship and made their fifth NCAA Championship appearance in the last seven years. Binghamton posted notable dual victories over No. 7 Brown (5-2), No. 9 Princeton (5-2) and two other ranked teams.

Binghamton's starting lineup consisted of three freshmen, two sophomores and a junior, giving Cohen his entire core of players back for the 2009-10 season.
