Indianapolis, Ind. – Georgia Tech freshman tennis player Christopher Eubanks, named to the All-Atlantic Coast Conference team earlier this week, has received an at-large bid to the NCAA Singles Championship, which will be conducted May 20-25 following the NCAA team championship in Waco, Texas.
The former Westlake High School star, who enrolled at Tech with a Blue Chip rating and ranked as high as 14th nationally in junior tennis, has played at the top of the Yellow Jackets’ lineup all spring, posting a 14-11 record in dual matches as the No. 1 or 2 player in the order, and a 24-19 singles record for the year. He has beaten five nationally-ranked players, including four among the nation’s top 40 in the ITA rankings.
Among his singles victories were No. 37 Andreas Bjerrehus of Virginia Tech in the ACC Tournament, No. 5 Seb Stiefelmeyer of Louisville, No. 11 Austin Smith and No. 15 Nathan Pasha of Georgia, and No. 69 Amerigo Contini of Virginia Tech during the regular season.
