Conference Release

VESTAL, N.Y.--Sophomores Dan Hanegby (Herzilya, Israel) and Zeynep Altinay (Antayla, Turkey) of Binghamton have been named the Men's and Women's Tennis Performers of the Week, respectively. The awards were announced Tuesday (April 5).

Hanegby earned a national ranking of #87 by the ITA in its March release. He becomes the first Binghamton tennis player to achieve a national ranking. Hanegby is 25-7 overall in 2004-05, and has won seven of his last eight matches. He is 15-4 in dual matches.

Altinay is currently 24-4 at No. 1 singles, having defeated Hartford's Anna Maria Mora 6-1, 6-0 on Sunday afternoon. The win gives her 15 wins in her last 16 matches. In Binghamton's 14 dual matches this season, Altinay is 13-1.
