Binghamton women's tennis continues play at Cornell Winter Invitational

VESTAL, N.Y.-- Freshmen Anna Edelman (Great Neck, N.Y.) and Lauren Bates (Buffalo, N.Y.) advanced to the A Doubles finals, highlighting Binghamton's performance in the second day of the Cornell Winter Invitational. In singles play, sophomore Danyelle Shapiro (Boca Raton, Fla.) has advanced to the semifinals of the B bracket and fellow sophomore Erica Rosenblum (Albany, N.Y.) has advanced to the semifinals of the C bracket.

This marks the first time that a Binghamton doubles team has advanced to the finals in the A or B bracket at the Cornell Winter Invitational. Edelman and Bates defeated Temple's Dina Sekina and Elyse Steiner 9-7 in the semifinals. Sekina and Steiner, who advanced to the third round at last October's ITA East Regional, were the top-seeded doubles team this weekend.

"Anna and Lauren played a great match against a very good doubles team," head coach Mike Stevens said. "They will have another challenging match tommorow but they came through in an exciting and tough battle today."

Shapiro meanwhile, defeated Carlin Calcaterra of Bucknell 6-3, 6-4 in the first round and rallied for a 3-6, 6-1, 6-4 win over Shayna Miller of Cornell in the second round. Rosenblum won her first round match against Krista Sotak of Bucknell 6-1, 6-4 and her second round match against Felicia Frazier of Temple 3-6, 6-2, 6-2.

Play continues on Sunday at 9 a.m. in the final day of the Cornell Winter Invitational.
