Head Coach Deb Panzica added “It was great to keep the momentum going for the 2012 version of the CCRI Knights tennis team. The win today signaled the eighth win in a row. We hope to keep our momentum going as we play Bristol CC in our final regular season match on Tuesday, April 24th. SUNY-Adirondack is poised to challenge Onondaga for the Region III crown so this win was a good one for our program this season.”
The Knights have one regular-season match left and the Region XXI tournament in the 2012 season when they travel to Bristol Community College in Fall River, MA to play the Bees in a Region XXI league match.
