STONY BROOK, N.Y. - Sophomore Sabrina Tahir (Yonkers, N.Y.) continued her strong start to the fall 2012 season for the Marist women's tennis squad with a berth in the semifinals of the Stony Brook Classic. She was joined by freshman Lisa Ventimiglia (Bayside, N.Y.) as Red Foxes with multiple wins in the three day tournament.

Playing in Flight E, Tahir went two-for-two in her first and quarterfinal matches, as she defeated Navy's Dye Das, 8-1 and followed it up with a three set victory over Army's Haley O'Connor by a score of 3-6, 6-1 and 10-8. On Sunday, she was defeated in the semifinals by the eventual champion of the bracket, Lisa Setyon of Stony Brook, 6-1 and 6-2.

After three wins at the Siena Classic last weekend, Ventimiglia earned two wins in Flight D at Stony Brook as she beat Army's Alyssa Hanson, 8-4 and Fairleigh Dickinson's Manu Leme 6-3, 7-5. Her road to the finals was unfortunately undone by a three set nail-biting loss to Navy's Sam Droop 7-6 (5), 2-6, 10-7.

Other winners for the Red Foxes included:  senior Kelsey Raynor (Garden City, N.Y.), who won a first round match versus Navy's Darien Sears, 8-1 in Flight A, senior Joana Sun (Gales Ferry, Conn.), who defeated Bryant's Devlin Ammendola in the first round of Flight B, junior Marielle Campbell (Patterson, N.Y.), who beat LIU's Nancy Zonneveld, 8-6 in Flight C, freshman Kaye Eastman (Grand Rapids, Mich.) over Bryant's Lucy Bird, 8-3 in Flight D and freshman Nikki Rohan (Mountain Lakes, N.J.) in Flight E with a 8-1 win over Army's Maya Parker.

In doubles action, the senior-freshman combinations of Sun and Karlene Pang (Kaneohe, Hawaii) and Raynor and Melissa Carlay (New Hyde Park, N.Y.) each earned first round wins. Sun and Pang defeated URI's Galina Chernykh and Nithila Asokaraj, 8-4, while Raynor and Carlay beat the Stony Brook duo of Becky Shtilkind and Louise Badoche, 8-5.

The Red Foxes will be off from competition until a home MAAC dual match versus Rider on Tuesday, Oct. 2.
