WEST POINT, N.Y.-The Army women's tennis team opened a stretch of six home dual matches on Friday night as the Black Knights went up against Binghamton and Sacred Heart at Lichtenberg Tennis Center. After competing in the Cornell Winter Invitational last weekend, Army began its season with a pair of 5-2 victories over both teams.
Under direction of head coach Paul Peck, Army swept six matches of doubles play and won 19 sets of singles matches. There were plenty of impressive performances in Friday night's competition but only one three-set Army triumph from freshman Nan Porter. In her first collegiate dual match at West Point, Porter went up against Binghamton's Annie DiMuro in which she recorded a 7-6 (4), 3-6, 10-6, victory.
The Black Knights have little time to rest, as they host Seton Hall on Saturday for a 10 a.m. match. Fans are encourage to follow @Army_WTennis on Twitter for more information and updates.
