On this day 20 years ago, Southampton came to the Stony Brook tennis courts as one of the toughest teams in League VII. All-Conference singles player Porter Beermann lost the opening match to the eventual Conference runner-up Rita Klissas (4-6, 4-6), but the next three singles players picked up their teammate. All-League player Adeeb Mohiuddin defeated her Mariner opponent (6-3, 6-3), Ali Jannello cruised to a 6-4, 6-0 decision, and Kate Knecht won the pivotal match in a tiebreaker (6-3, 7-6 (7-4)).  The Bears seized the win when the 1st doubles team of Arden Teurfs and Christy Sweet pulled out a three-set decision, 6-4, 3-6, 6-2. Stony Brook dropped the last two doubles matches but it was of little consequence as the Brook sent the Mariners back to the east end with a 4-3 loss.
