Tulsa, Okla. – Georgia Tech’s Christopher Eubanks was eliminated from the Saint Francis Health Systems ITA All-American Championships in a three-set match to California’s Florian Lakat Friday at the Case Tennis Center in Tulsa, Okla.
The 6-foot-7 sophomore from Atlanta, a top-16 seed in this event and ranked 24th in the country, fell to 5-2 for the fall with a 6-4, 3-6, 6-4 loss to Lakat, a junior for the Bears ranked 36th in the nation.
“Chris played some great tennis today and came up short,” said Tech assistant coach Derek Schwandt. “Overall, I;m really happy with how Chris is developing. He is one of our hardest workers. We are looking forward to another opportunity at regionals next weekend.”
Tech returns to action next weekend at the USTA/ITA Southeast Regional in Gainesville, Fla.
