VESTAL, N.Y.-- Freshmen Anna Edelman (Great Neck, N.Y.) and Lauren Bates (Buffalo, N.Y.) won the A Doubles championship, highlighting Binghamton's performance in the third and final day of the Cornell Winter Invitational. The duo becomes the first Binghamton players ever to win a doubles title at the event.

One day after defeating top-seeded Dina Sekina and Elyse Steiner of Temple in the semifinals, Edelman and Bates beat second-seeded Shayna Miller and Sinziana Chis of Cornell 8-5 in the finals. The freshman tandem, who is ranked No. 15 in the ITA East Region, is 14-1 so far this season.

"Today was another great match for Lauren and Anna," head coach Mike Stevens. "They defeated two very good teams the past two days."

In singles play, Bates went on to win the A Flight Consolation title. She beat Melissa Orteza of Cornell 6-3, 7-5 in the semifinals and was declared the champion when her finals opponent, Dana Cruite of Cornell, withdrew due to an illness.
