The Emory men's tennis team claimed its third consecutive University Athletic Association title on Sunday, defeating Washington University in the championship final.  The No. 2-ranked Eagles won for the ninth straight time and raised their overall record to 17-4 (3-0 UAA) following an 8-1 triumph over the No. 6 Bears who slipped to 15-4 overall.

Emory got off to a big advantage after winning all three doubles matches. Junior Max Renke and sophomore Adrien Bouchet notched the first point of the contest with an 8-4 decision over Jeremy Bush and J.J. Kroot at No. 2.  Shortly after, at first doubles, junior Scott Rubinstein and sophomore James Spaulding emerged with an 8-4 decision over Jason Haugen and Konrad Kozlowski, upping their spring mark to 13-8. Junior David Omsky and sophomore Jonathan Jemison rounded out doubles with an exciting 9-7 verdict against Bernardo Neves and Radha Vishnubhotla at No. 3 for their 12th triumph in 16 decisions this spring.

Jemison propelled Emory to a 4-0 lead after getting the better of John Carswell, 6-1, 6-4, at No. 2 singles, his fifth straight win and 17th in 21 outings this spring. Bouchet then recorded the fifth and winning point with a 6-4, 6-4 triumph against Bernardo Neves at No. 3, which improved his spring slate to 12-5. Senior Aman Manji saw his spring record move to 17-4 as a result of his 6-0, 6-4 victory at the No. 1 slot.  Rubinstein increased the Eagles' margin to 7-0 after topping Shaun Berman at No. 6, 7-5, 6-4. After WU came away with its lone point at No. 5, Alec Josepher rounded out the Emory singles victors with a 6-4, 2-6, 6-2, decision at No. 4 against Bush, his 14th triumph against five setbacks this spring.

Emory's Sunday performance represents the 26th time in 30 seasons that it has won the league title.
