STONY BROOK, N.Y. - Jordan Brewer ’14 and Gabby Devlin ’14 edged out Army’s Erin Colton ’13 and Jamila Paul ’14, 9-7, to capture the 2012 Stony Brook Women’s Tennis Classic’s flight ‘A’ doubles championship.

Going 4-0 over the three-day tournament, Brewer and Devlin began their run by rallying from a 6-1 deficit in their opener against Army’s Eva Sung ’16 and Gabriella Spindler ’16. The Jeffs’ duo then defeated Navy’s Emani Decquir ’13 and Sam Droop ’16 (8-5) to move onto yesterday’s semifinal.

Turning away Stony Brook’s Nina Laguilava ’13 and Polina Movchan ’15 by a score of 8-4, Brewer and Devlin advanced to today’s final round matchup with Army.

In ‘E’ flight singles action, Maddy Sung ’16 downed Bryant’s Lyan Juarbe ’16, 8-3, before squaring off with Colgate’s Katie Grant ’16. Hoping to recover from a 7-6 (4) first-set loss, Sung knotted the match with a 6-2 triumph in the middle frame before closing things out with a 10-0 decision in the third. Moving onto the semifinals, Sung’s run finally came to an end with a 6-2, 7-5 loss to Army’s Kelly Daniel ’16.

Overall, Amherst put forth a strong showing at the tournament comprised of Division I and II programs, with Jeffs advancing to the semifinals in both the ‘B’ and ‘E’ flight singles and ‘A’ and ‘B’ flight doubles draws.

Amherst returns to action on Sept. 28-30 at the ITA Championships.
