Binghamton beats men’s tennis at home on Senior Day

The GW men’s tennis team was unable to earn a Senior Day victory Sunday, falling 4-3 to Binghamton.

The Colonials (12-8) started Sunday’s slide in doubles play. Freshmen doubles team Viktor Svensson and Ulrik Thomsen earned a victory in the third doubles match, but it wasn’t enough to overcome Binghamton, which won the first two doubles matches to secure the doubles point heading into singles play.

Junior Ugur Atalay and senior Yan Levinski fell in the first two single matches before junior Christopher Kushma and Thomsen worked to reverse the tide of the match for the Colonials by defeating their Binghamton opponents, with Kushma winning in straight sets.

The brief rally wasn’t enough to reverse the fortunes of the Colonials, however, and Binghamton solidified its victory when junior Erik Hannah fell in the No. 5 singles slot, despite a singles victory from sophomore Alexander van Gils.

The Colonials finish the season on the road this coming weekend, traveling to Georgetown Saturday, April 9 at 11 a.m., and heading to Harrisonburg, Va., Sunday, April 10, to take on James Madison at 1 p.m.
