Bearcats' win streak snapped by Stony Brook 4-3

BURLINGTON, Vt.. - Finishing a grueling string of six matches in six days, Binghamton men's tennis (10-7) saw its five-match win streak haulted against conference rival Stony Brook, 4-3, Wednesday afternoon in Vermont. The reigning America East champion Bearcats split the six singles matches but surrendered the doubles point to the Seawolves. Three of the six singles matches went to three sets, with Stony Brook capturing two of them.

"We would've liked to come away with a win, but overall it was a good effort," head coach Michael Starke said. "I'm proud of this team, taking themselves on the road and playing hard for six days. I think we're readying ourselves for the conference championship and hope we're a factor there."

Freshman singles player Dan Hanegby (Herzeliya, Israel) continued his utter domination against America East opponents, rolling over Tal Meir at No. 1, 6-1, 6-2. Hanegby has now won nine straight matches, and improved to 26-5 overall, including a 15-2 mark in dual matches.

Junior Juan Garcia (Lima, Peru) won for the seventh straight time - a 7-5, 6-3 triumph at No. 6. Garcia raised his overall record to 20-7, including 12-4 in duals.

Binghamton is off for nine days before hosting Rochester on the West Gym Courts on April 16.
