Torsiello Advances to County Tournament

Falls in division finals for second straight year, but will compete for Section XI title.

As expected, season has extended for at least one more weekend. Torsiello earned a berth into the Suffolk County Singles Tournament after finishing as the runner-up in the Division III tournament, falling to Tylah Gantt of Stony Brook for the second consecutive year, 6-1, 6-4.

Torsiello, who defeated Gantt earlier this year, is one of four players to qualify from Divison III for Saturday's first round matchups at Smithtown East. The brackets have yet to be released, though there is a chance the Phantoms' star will meet Gantt again for this season's rubber match in one of the tournament's later rounds.

Should Torsiello advance past Saturday by winning a pair of matches, she will advance to the semifinals on Monday afternoon, also at Smithtown East. The finals will take place the same afternoon.
