Emory Men's Tennis Wins UAA Championship With Finals Win Over Brandeis

Emory Men's Tennis Wins UAA Championship With Finals Win Over Brandeis

After a year's hiatus, the Emory men's tennis team is bringing the University Athletic Association Championship back to Atlanta following a Sunday win over Brandeis in the title match.  The No. 3-ranked Eagles won for the 13th straight time and upped their overall record to 17-2 after recording a 5-1 verdict over the No. 10 Judges who fell to 16-4.

Sophomore Hayden Cassone and freshman Antonio Mora got Emory off on the right foot at third doubles with their 8-2 decision over Colt Tegtmeier and Tyler Ng accounting for the first point of the match while raising their season record to 15-4.  BU tied the contest at No. 2 doubles with what proved to be its lone point of the match at No. 2 doubles, but the Eagles went ahead for good following the senior tandem of Jonathan Jemison and Adrien Bouchet winning at No. 1, 8-3, against David Aizenberg and Anupreeth Coramutla.  The win was the 10th straight for Jemsion and Bouchet and boosted their season ledger to 24-4.

All three of the Emory singles wins came in straight sets.  Cassone extended the Eagles to a 3-1 edge after coming away with a 6-3, 6-2 triumph at No. 2 that raised his season record to 14-7.  Bouchet put the Emory one point from clinching when he won for the 20th time in 23 outings during the year with a 6-1, 6-3 verdict over Adam Tzeng at third.  At No. 5, freshman Andrew Esses closed things out, 6-2, 6-2, vs. Rajan Vohra that represented his 20th win of the campaign.

Today's title was Emory's fourth in the last five seasons and the program's 27th overall.

The Eagles will hear on Monday, May 6, as to who and where they will be playing in the opening rounds of the NCAA D-III Championships.
