She teamed with freshman Emily Walsh (Scranton, Pa./Scranton Preparatory) for an 8-0 win at No. 2 doubles, then went out and rallied for a 3-6, 6-2, 6-2 win at No. 2 singles.

On Sunday, April 21, Cohen helped Scranton hand Goucher its only Landmark Conference loss of the season, 6-3. She again teamed with Walsh for a win at No. 2 doubles, this time prevailing 8-6. Cohen also earned a win at No. 2 singles when her opponent retired with Cohen leading 7-6 (7-4), 4-1.

On the season, Cohen is 8-6 in singles play, including 4-2 in conference matches. She is 6-8 in doubles play, including 3-3 in conference matches.

Cohen and the Royals will begin defense of their Landmark Conference championship as the No. 3 seed and will visit second-seeded Catholic on Wednesday, April 24, at 3:30 p.m.
