Halpern, who will be playing in his first Singles Championships, has held down the No. 1 spot in the Eagles' lineup for the majority of the season, posting a won-lost record of 10-8.   He is the No. 6-ranked singles player in the Atlantic South Region.

Kahler and Wagner, ranked as the No. 2 doubles team in the region, have been solid as Emory's top duo, fashioning an impressive 19-5 record on the year.  The pair played together last season in helping the team to a national crown, turning in an overall slate of 20-5.

The individual championships shall consist of 32 singles players and 16 doubles teams. The selection of teams and individuals for the championships are based on win-lost record, strength of schedule, and eligibility and availability of student-athletes.
