Stony Brook N.Y. / Hamden Conn. - The Navy women's tennis team opened the 2013 fall season by competing at the Stony Brook Invitational and the Quinnipiac Invitational from Friday to Sunday. Navy won a combined 28 matches at the two tournaments and two players advanced to the semifinal round of singles play in their respective flights.

"It's still early and we still have quite a bit of work to do, but I thought we did have a few bright spots this weekend," head coach Keith Puryear said. "But we need to continue to work to get better and that is what the fall season is for. It's a process and we are taking it one step a time. We will look to continue to improve this week before hosting the Moore Invitational."

The two players that advanced to the semifinals did so at the Stony Brook Invitational. Senior Erin Snook (Tampa, Fla.) defeated Katya Yegoreychencko of Long Island Brooklyn, 6-1, 6-0, in the "A" singles quarterfinals before falling to eventual flight champion Galina Chernykh of Rhode Island, 6-0, 6-2, in the semifinals.

Freshman Audrey Channell (Cary, N.C.) advanced to the semifinals of the "D" flight at Stony Brook. Channel defeated Army's Caroline Lorenzini, 8-3, in the opening round before knocking off Nikki Rohan of Marist, 7-6 (7-3), 6-0 in the first round. Channel then bested Brittany Thompson of LIU Brooklyn, 6-1, 6-0, before falling to Stony Brook's Nadia Smergut in the semifinals, 6-2, 6-4.

Sophomore Sam Droop (Hilton Head Island, S.C.) won a pair of matches in the "A" consolation draw to make it to the finals, as did sophomore Cassandra Fisbeck (Granada Hills, Calif.) in the "D" consolation draw.

A highlight of Navy's participation at the Quinnipiac Invitational was the play of junior Noelle Kaufmann (Westlake, Ohio) and sophomore Mikaela Carlson (Carmel, Ind.) in the "A" doubles draw. After losing in the first round of the main draw, the duo went 3-0 in the consolation bracket. Kaufmann and Carlson defeated Hannah Zangari and Jennifer DeLuca of Providence, 8-5, Katina Zampas and Colleen Beck of Hartford, 8-1 and Eva Sung and Carly Riney of Army, 8-0.

Senior captain Darien Sears (Silver Spring, Md.) went 2-1 in the "A" singles draw at Quinnipiac. Sears lost to Katie DeRienzo of Sacred Heart, 6-3, 5-7, 1-0 (10-5) in the first round but then defeated Chloe Sher of Seton Hall, 8-3, and Sarah Hellstern of Niagara, 8-6, in the back draw.

Navy will next host the Bill and Sandra Moore Invitational next weekend. The invite will run from Friday to Sunday at the Tose Family Tennis Center and the Fluegel-Moore Tennis Stadium.
