Broome improved to 6-1 on Tuesday as they defeated Mohawk Valley CC 9-0 at The Oz Winters Tennis Complex.  Shyanne Daye (Binghamton, NY/Susquehanna Valley) won her match at No.1 singles, she has dropped only 1 of her 13 games in singles.  After dropping the first set, Emily Whitaker (Vestal, NY/Vestal) came back to win at No.3 singles in three sets.   Mollie Elder (Binghamton, NY/Chenango Forks) continues to improve at No.4 singles, defeating Johnson in a close match in the third set tiebreaker 10-6. Chelsea Deuel (Binghamton, NY/Binghamton) played at No.2 singles and pulled out her marathon match after three hours of play.  Deuel dropped the first set but turned the match around to win the 2nd set and the third set tiebreaker 10-8.
