Despite a desire for revenge, the Bison women’s tennis team fell to Binghamton 7-0 in its second match-up against the Bearcats. With the loss, the Orange and Blue’s record dropped to 0-4 for the spring season.
“We’re having a bit of a rough start, but nothing really unusual for this time of the year,” Head Coach Rebecca Helt said. “We start off playing some of the strongest teams in the region and we look to those matches to identify where we need to work in terms of our overall match play.”
Even with a rough start, the Bison didn’t go down without a fight. Dumitrita Iepuras ’12 put up a fight in the second set of her singles match but ultimately fell 6-3, 7-5 to her Binghamton opponent. Lauren Rottkamp ’11 and Elizabeth Morgan ’14 gave Binghamton the toughest time at doubles but could not pull out the win, falling 8-5.
The Orange and Blue will have some time off the court to focus on the upcoming half of the spring season.
“This time of year we’re still making adjustments in the line-up, adjustments in our doubles teams, and just looking to get everyone healthy for the second half of the spring season,” Helt said.
The Bison will be back March 5 in New York against St. Bonaventure.
