Emory Players Advance In NCAA Singles Championships
Emory University seniors Michael Goodwin and Mark Boren have
advanced to the second round of the NCAA Division III Singles
Championships after posting victories in their opening matches.
Goodwin, seeded No. 5 in the 32-player field, defeated Jeremy Weinberger of Williams College in straight sets, 7-5, 6-2. Boren earned his way to the next round after topping No. 4 seed Michael Greenberg of Kenyon College, 6-3, 6-0. Freshman Chris Goodwin was the third Emory entry in the singles action but fell short against Will Zhang of the University of Chicago, 5-7, 3-6.
Boren's next opponent will be Ben Stein of Bates College while Goodwin will meet up with either Andrew Giuffrida of Cal Lutheran or Tomas Piskacek of Kenyon. Both of those matches will be played later today.
The Goodwin brothers are one of 16 doubles teams taking part in the Championships and they begin their quest on Friday as well against Jamie Neely and Oscar Pena of Bowdoin.
