Eric Halpern

Junior Eric Halpern became the seventh Emory player in the past eight years to win the USTA/ITA South Region Singles Championship, winning six matches en route to the crown.

Halpern had to defeat teammates over his last three matches in winning the title, freshman Rocco English in the quarterfinals, classmate Ian Wagner (1-6, 6-4, 7-5) in the semifinals and sophomore Rafe Mosetick (3-6, 7-6, 6-2) in the finals.

By virtue of his championship performance, Halpern captures All-America honors and will advance to the ITA National Small College Championship, Oct. 10-13, in Fort Myers, Florida.
