WEST POINT, N.Y. – Strong singles play from sophomore Emily Stanley led the St. Bonaventure University women's tennis team at the three-day Army West Point Invitational.
Stanley won five matches to advance to the finals of the "E" singles flight. Three out of her five matches went the full three sets, including when she rallied from a set down in the semifinals against Sophia Suri from Army to win 5-7, 6-4, 10-8. Stanley, however, fell to Fairfield's Sophia Prinos in the finals.
Abreu defeated Alna Plana of Seton Hall in the first round of the "B" singles flight in straight sets, 6-4, 6-4. In the next round, Abreu bested Shamika Dhar from NJIT also in straight sets, 7-5, 6-4, before falling in the quarterfinals. Young was the winner of two matches in the "B" singles flight consolation on the weekend. The freshman took down Binghamton's Michelle Eisenberg, 8-7 (7), and was victorious against Arianna Oropeza from Bryant, 8-6.
In doubles action, Abreu and partner Andrea Roque grabbed a win against the Columbia duo of Sophie Raiszadeh and Caitie Sullivan, 7-5.
The Bonnies are back in action Oct. 4-6 when they host the SBU Fall Classic at the St. Bonaventure Tennis Courts.
