Bates captures pair of titles at Quinnipiac Women's Tennis Invitational

HAMDEN, Conn. - Freshman Lauren Bates (Buffalo, N.Y.) won the B Singles flight and teammed up with fellow freshmen Anna Edelman (Great Neck, N.Y.) to win the A Doulbles title, highlighting Binghamton's performance in the final day of the Quinnipiac Women's Tennis Invitational.

Bates swept Robie Verano of Army 6-2, 6-1 in her semifinal match before defeating Christen Cadigan of Rhode Island in dramatic fashion in the championship match. She dropped the first set 6-4, swept the second set 6-0 and won the tie breaker 10-5.

Earlier in the day, Bates and Edelmann defeated Wilson and Martinson of Quinnipiac 8-3 in the A Doubles finals. Wilson, however, defeated Edelmann in the A Singles semifinals later in the afternoon 6-3, 7-6 (3).
