Bates captures pair
of titles at Quinnipiac Women's Tennis Invitational
HAMDEN, Conn. - Freshman
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).
Binghamton hosts its fall invitational
