Ian Wagner Named UAA Men's Tennis Player Of The Week
Emory University sophomore Ian Wagner (Columbus, OH) has been selected as the University Athletic Association Tennis Player of the Week after helping the Eagles to a pair of wins. It marks the first time this season and second in his career that he has been chosen for the honor.
Wagner turned in a strong effort at the Stag-Hen Invitational, capturing all three of his singles matches, opening with a 6-1, 6-2 decision over Max Sacks of Swarthmore College at the No. 2 slot, before earning a 6-2, 6-0 win against Sam King of No. 5 Bowdoin College at No. 3. In the championship match against host and No. 4-ranked Claremont-Mudd Scripps, Wagner accounted for the team's lone point with a 7-5, 7-5 win at No. 3 vs. Nikolas Marino. In addition, Wagner teamed with Elliot Kahler at No. 1 doubles to emerge victorious in two matches.
Wagner stands 13-2 in overall singles play during the 2012-13 season (10-2 in the spring) and is 14-3 in doubles action.
Emory will face Division I member Furman University on Friday (Mar. 22) in a 3:00 pm match.
