BINGHAMTON, N.Y. – Sophomore Colin Sacco went 3-0 to win the Flight C singles title as the Bucknell men’s tennis team closed play at the Binghamton Championships on Sunday. It was the second singles flight title of the season for Sacco.
Sacco was in a four-player round-robin bracket with Niagara’s Jason Wisely, NJIT’s George Svenson, and Colgate’s Cam Swanson. He was dominant in the win, not giving up more than two games in the six sets he played.
Sacco opened with a 6-2, 6-1 win over Wisely on Friday, and then won his second round match 6-2, 6-1 over Svenson on Saturday.
Needing a win to avoid a three-way tie at the top of the standings, Sacco rolled to a 6-1, 6-0 win over Swanson in his final match on Sunday. He improved to 7-0 this fall, including four wins while winning a title at the Bucknell Fall Invite.
Colin has had a great fall season,” Bucknell head coach Bruce Myers said. “Last season he also had a strong fall but was sidelined in January due to an illness and was never able to fully recover. I can see him playing an important role this spring if he can continue his high level of play.”
The Bison continue the fall portion of their schedule when they compete at the Mount St. Mary’s Invitational on Oct. 6-8.
“Overall our fitness was outstanding, but the little things between the ears are what are holding us back from winning the close matches,” Myers said. “That is what the fall is all about for sure, preparation for the spring.”
