Bearcats compete in Bucknell Invitational

The Binghamton University women's tennis team opened the fall season at the Bucknell Invitational, a non-scoring event. Rain halted play at the invitational midway through Saturday's action, and play on Sunday was completely rained out.

Before the rains came, senior Amy Weissberg (Syosset, N.Y.) won lost her lone matchs in the A singles flight, falling to an opponent from Georgetown 6-4, 0-6, 7-6 (10-4). Junior Janine Sadaka (Great Neck, N.Y.) lost her only match to a Bloomsburg foe, 6-1, 6-2.

"Amy improved as her match went on," said head coach Jamie Campbell. "She and played a great second second set but came up short in the tiebreaker."

At the B flight, freshman Justina Hakimi (Manhasset, N.Y.) won her first round match against a Pittsburgh opponent, 6-1, 6-2. Sophomore Alexis Brill (Syosset, N.Y.) held a 3-0 lead in the first set when her Pittsburgh foe retired.

“Justina had a great first college match,” Campbell said. “She has great energy and a competitive drive on the court.”

At the C flight, junior Erin Monaco (Bayside, N.Y.) rallied to win a 4-6, 6-4, 7-6 (10-3) match over her opponent from Pittsburgh. Senior Kristin Jobe (Texas City, Texas), however, lost to a Bucknell opponent 6-2, 6-4.

“Erin made a great comeback,” said Campbell. “She consistently moved the ball well and got stronger as the match went on.”

Finally, at the D Flight, sophomore Amy Linda (Bronx, N.Y.) won her match against a Bloomsburg player 6-4, 6-2 and sophomore Jonali Dutta (Glenville, N.Y.) defeated her opponent from Loyola 4-6, 6-3, 7-6 (10-5).

Up next for the Bearcats is the Quinnipiac Invitational, which will be held Sept. 27-29. The tournament will not have team scoring. In addition to the host team, Connecticut, Army, UMBC, Dartmouth, Hartford and Stony Brook are in the field.

“This weekend will be much more challenging,” Campbell said. “We’ve never faced Connecticut and we are anxious to go up against our conference teams (Hartford and Stony Brook) to see what kind of depth they have.
