women's tennis is ninth in final ITA Northeast Region rankings
VESTAL, N.Y.-- The Binghamton women's tennis team, which finished
the season 15-3 and was the runner up in the America East Conference,
has finished the season in ninth place in the final ITA Northeast
Region Rankings of the year. Junior Anna
Edelman and sophomore Marina
Bykovskaya also appeared in the final regional rankings.
After being ranked as high as No. 68 in the ITA National Rankings
during the season, the Bearcats earned their first-ever regional
ranking at the end of a season. There are 50 women's tennis programs
in the Northeast Region.
Edelman, meanwhile, tied for No. 20 in the final Northeast Region
singles rankings. She also joined Bykovskaya as the sixth-ranked
Binghamton returns its top six singles players and top three
doubles tandems for the 2010-11 campaign.
"We are very pleased with our final rankings," head
coach Mike Stevens said. "We look forward to having everyone
back next season."
NOTE: Edelman was the second-highest ranked singles player
from a school in the America East Conference. Edelman and Bykovskaya,
however, were the top-ranked doubles team.
