"While individual recognition is always an honor," Cardinal coach Tara Danielson, "our focus is firmly on the team and defending our America East title."

Bing and Zanolli were joined on the America East West Division team by teammates Kristina Bassi, Katie Keyser, Nina Randolph and Millie Stefanowicz.

In addition, Frances Carstens, Sarah Johnson and Zanolli were also named to the America East All-Rookie Team.

Bing also added another accolade being named to the All-Academic team.

The Cardinal will take on host Massachusetts-Lowell in quarterfinal action Thursday at 12:30 p.m.


Sophomore Emily Arbuthnott and freshman Michaela Gordon won their opening matches Wednesday at the Oracle ITA National Fall Championships at Indian Wells.

Arbuthnott and Gordon earned bids to the inaugural event thanks to their performances at the ITA Northwest Regional Championships two weeks ago. Gordon defeated Arbuthnott 7-5, 6-2 in the title match, with Gordon receiving automatic qualification while Arbuthnott secured an at-large entry.

Arbuthnott and Gordon, who also reached the doubles semifinals of the ITA Northwest Regional Championships, are paired together again this weekend.

On the men's side, Columbia's Victor Pham beat Stanford's Sameer Kumar, 6-3, 5-7, 6-1, in the opening round.
