STONY BROOK, N.Y. - Freshman Amanda Cyr and sophomore Aimee Dervishian each won singles flights to highlight Navy's performance at the season-opening Stony Brook Women's Tennis Invitational this weekend.

Freshman Amanda Cyr won the "C" singles flight in her first collegiate tournament. Cyr opened with a 6-4, 6-1 win over Nina Marjanovic of St. John's and then defeated Fairleigh Dickinson's Anamaria Vladescu in the quarterfinals, 6-4, 6-1. Cyr posted a third consecutive two-set win with a 6-2, 6-4 win over Army's Sasha Inchauste in the semifinals. Cyr won the "C" flight with a 6-1, 1-6, 1-0 (10-6) win over Army's Hannah Boubel.

Sophomore Aimee Dervishian captured the "D" singles flight with a 4-0 record. Dervishian beat Quinnipiac's Courtney Nash in the first round, 6-2, 6-3, and then beat Stony Brook's Nolwenn Cardoso in the quarterfinals, 6-7, 6-3, 1-0 (10-2). Dervishian knocked off Stony Brook's Stephanie Chikvashvili in the semifinals, 7-5, 6-0, and then won the flight by beating LIU Brooklyn's Clemence Krug in the final, 6-2, 4-6, 1-0 (10-7).

Sophomore Danika Kahatapitiya lost her first-round "D" singles match to Hofstra's Odessa Stork, 6-3, 7-5, but reeled off three straight wins in the backdraw to win the consolation bracket. Kahatapitiya beat Quinnipiac's Amy Zammarieh, 8-2, St. John's Delia Arranz, 9-8 (7-3) and Army's Abigail Waldman, 8-6.

Senior captain Amanda Keller and sophomore Kaylah Hodge fared well in the "A" doubles flight, finishing as the runners-up in the bracket. Keller and Hodge were ranked ninth in the year-end ITA Atlantic Region Doubles Rankings last year.



Keller and Hodge opened the "A" flight by defeating LIU Brooklyn's Anna Grigoryan and Ana Leonte, 6-2, in the first round. The pair then defeated Quinnipiac's Layla Rodriguez and Payton Bradley in the quarterfinals, 6-1, and beat St. John's Kajsa Stegrell and Jessica Livianu in the semifinals, 7-5. Their run was ended in the "A" flight final by LIU Brooklyn's Sasha Bollwed and Jessica Brzozowski, 6-4.

Keller also advanced to the semifinal round of the top singles flight. Keller opened the tournament with a first-round win over Fairleigh Dickinson's Tatiana Eftenoiu, 7-5, 6-2, in the "A" singles flight. Keller then bested Army's Anastasiya Joyner in the quarterfinals, 7-6, 7-6, before falling to Stony Brook's Elizabeth Tsvetkov in the semifinals, 6-4, 6-1.

Sophomore Emily Louie-Meadors advanced to the final of the "B" singles flight with a 3-1 record. Louie-Meadors defeated Liza Rachenko of Fairleigh Dickinson in the first round, 6-2, 6-4, and then outlasted Quinnipiac's Layla Rodriguez in the quarterfinals, 3-6, 6-3, 1-0 (10-4). Louie-Meadors bested Jaide Collins of St. John's in the semifinals, 1-6, 6-2, 1-0 (10-3), before falling to LIU Brooklyn's Malin Leysen in the final, 6-4, 6-2.

"It felt good to get out and compete this weekend," said Navy head coach Keith Puryear. "This is always a great event with solid competition. There were many positives to take away from this event. We made several flight finals and Aimee, Amanda and Danika won their flight in either the main draw or the back draw. We are looking forward to hosting the Moore Invitational next weekend."

Navy competed at the Stony Brook Invitational for the ninth straight season this weekend. Navy doubled its number of flight winners at this tournament, as the Mids had previously only won two singles flights at Stony Brook. Navy's previous flight winners were Keller in the "C" flight in 2014 and Ansofi Wreder in the "D" flight in 2016. Cyr, Keller and Wreder each won flights at the Stony Brook Invitational as freshmen.

Navy will next host the Bill & Sandra Moore Invitational from Sept. 15-17.
