On this day 21 years ago, the Stony Brook girls’ tennis squad opened their season on the east end of the Island against Greenport/Southold in a League VII tilt. Freshman Porter Beermann put the Bears on top early with a marathon battle that was ultimately ended by darkness. After dropping the first set handily 1-6, Beermann fought back to win the tiebreak in the second set 7-6 (7-5) and was ahead 4-2 in the final frame when dusk fell, giving her the first of her team-high thirteen wins that season. Stony Brook fell behind 1-3 after the singles matches, dropping each in straight sets. For the Bears to win, the doubles teams had to sweep, and the tandems of Lofgren/Willumstad, Sweet/Teurfs, and Crowley/Mohiuddin came through, dropping only seven of their 43 combined games.
