BINGHAMTON, N.Y. – Bucknell is still in contention for two flight titles after the first day of competition at the Binghamton Championships on Friday. Sophomore Colin Sacco won his opening match in Flight C singles, while senior Daniel Wright and freshman Max Garramone went 1-1 in Flight A doubles.
Sacco, who is in a four-player round-robin draw, opened the tournament with a convincing 6-2, 6-1 win over Niagara’s Jason Wiseley. He continues play on Saturday against NJIT’s George Svenson, who defeated Colgate’s Cam Swanson in the other first-round match.
The champion in the singles round-robin bracket will be determined by overall record. In the case of a tie, it will go to head-to-head and then total game differential.
Wright and Garramone played together for the first time and won their opening match 6-4 over NJIT’s Tomi Antoljak and Aleksa Petrovic. They then dropped a tough 7-5 decision to Colgate’s Jacob Daugherty and Scott Bickel.
Wright and Garramone will need to win their match on Saturday and have Colgate lose its match against the NJIT team to be in contention for the Flight A doubles title.
