Women's tennis sweeps Bucknell 7-0
All 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.
