CARY, NORTH CAROLINA--The Emory men's and women's tennis programs enjoyed banner performances on the final day of action at the NCAA Division III Championships with a pair of performers bringing home singles championships.
Dillon Pottish captured the men's title with a 6-2, 1-6, 6-2 victory over Nick Ballou (Bah-lew) of Cal Lutheran in the title match, closing out his season record at 34-3. Pottish, last year's national runner-up, becomes the second straight and third Emory player overall to capture the singles title, joining Michael Goodwin (2009) and Chris Goodwin (2011) in that exclusive company.
Gabby Clark toppled top-seeded Lok-Sze Leung (lock-see-lung) of Middlebury College in the women's title showdown, 6-2, 7-6, becoming the third Emory women's player in school annals to earn that coveted distinction. Clark, who ended the year with a 27-4, record, joins Mary Ellen Gordon (2003 and 2004) and Lorne McManigle as other Emory women's singles champions.
