Men’s tennis wins seventh straight conference title
April 28, 2014Tweet
Binghamton men’s tennis (16-11) put an exclamation point on its tenure in the America East with a 4-0 win over Stony Brook in the championship match Sunday morning at the Wilde Lake Community Center. The conference title was the program’s seventh consecutive and 10th in 13 years. During the current seven-year run under head coach Adam Cohen, Bingahmron has surrendered just six points in 14 matches
The 2014 championship is be the last men’s tennis event sponsored by the America East and unlike past years, the Bearcats will not advance to the NCAA tournament, as the sport sponsorship (4 schools) fell short of the NCAA requirement. Binghamton will begin its membership in the Mid-American Conference next fall and will be eligible to compete for that conference’s NCAA automatic bid in the spring.
