tennis sweeps Bucknell 7-0
six Bearcats post a pair of wins over the Bison
LEWISBURG, Pa. -- For the second
straight Sunday, Binghamton (2-2) blanked its opponent as the
Bearcats posted a 7-0 shutout over host Bucknell. Similar to
the squad's triumph over Seton Hall, all six Bearcats notched
a pair of wins.
"This was a good win for the team to regain our confidence,"
head coach Libby McGovern said. "We will use this match
to build on our focus and energy."
Binghamton featured a few lineup changes from Saturday's competition
against Cornell. Every Bearcat competed with a different teammate
from Saturday in the doubles portion of the match. Freshman Jennifer Fridman cracked the starting
lineup and registered a strong showing with a 6-1, 6-0 victory
at sixth singles. Junior Jillian Santos
teamed with the newcomer at third doubles en route to an 8-5
win. Santos posted a 6-3, 7-5 triumph at second singles, improving
to 14-5 on the year in singles play.
Junior Marina Bykovskaya bumped
up to first doubles alongside Anna Edelman
as the duo tallied an 8-1 win. Bykovskaya only dropped two
games between her doubles and singles matches. She added an impressive
6-0, 6-1 victory at fourth singles. Meanwhile, Edelman notched
a straight-set win at first singles.
The tandem of senior Yulia Smirnova
and junior Emma Leibowicz produced
an 8-3 triumph at second doubles. Smirnova recorded a 6-0, 6-3
win at third singles, while Leibowicz was a straight-set winner
at fifth singles.
Binghamton's next dual match is Sunday, February 20 at Temple.
