Oct. 8, 2015


Tulsa, Okla. – Georgia Tech’s Christopher Eubanks won his opening-round match in three sets Thursday at the Saint Francis Health Systems ITA All-American Championships, which is being conducted 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, lost his first set, but came back to outlast Vanderbilt sophomore Daniel Valent, ranked 49th nationally, 4-6, 7-6, 6-4. Eubanks improved to 5-1 this fall.

Eubanks moves onto the round of 32, where he’ll face 36th-ranked Florian Lakat of California.

“I was really impressed with Chris’ head and heart today,” said Tech assistant coach Derek Schwandt. “He battled through some nerves and competed great.”

First rounds may not always be pretty but as long as you get the job done, that’s all that matters 🎾💪🏽✊🏽. On to the next round!
