Binghamton men's tennis loses at Stetson 6-1

DeLAND, Fla. - Binghamton men's tennis (7-5) began its spring trip to Florida with a 6-1 loss to Stetson University (10-4) Monday afternoon at the Mandy Stoll Tennis Center. Binghamton dropped the doubles point and then lost five of the six singles matches - though two of those defeats came in third-set tiebreaks.

Sophomore Mark Piro (Clifton Park, N.Y.) gave the Bearcats their lone point. He posted a 4-6, 6-2, 1-0 (10-6) win at sixth singles. Piro is now 11-4 overall, 6-3 in duals.

"It was a well-fought match," head coach Michael Starke said of the four-and-a-half hour match. "It was much closer than the final score would indicate."
