Chris Goodwin (Emory)
The Eagles had to be happy to see him back in the singles lineup. He went 6-0 last week in matches against Cal Lu, Skidmore, and Kenyon, winning comfortably in all of his singles matches, and teaming with Dillon Pottish to help Emory avoid the doubles sweep against Kenyon. Now, we’ll see what happens when he gets back up to #2 singles.
Honorable Mention: Dillon Pottish (Emory), Erik Lim (Johns Hopkins)
Gary Parizher (Wash U)
Kenyon, Wash U, and Case Western were the only Central region teams in action last week, and all three suffered disappointing losses. Kenyon produced a couple wins, but Parizher’s play was a significant bright spot in an otherwise disappointing week for Wash U. He won all three of his singles matches, including a 6-3 6-4 victory over 40th ranked Ben Hwang of Johns Hopkins. Perhaps the Bears will find a way to get Parizher in the doubles lineup after this weekend, as they came up just a couple matches short of a few big victories.
Honorable Mention: Kevin Ye (Kenyon)
Chris Lord (Bowdoin)
The Northeast award had to go to a Bowdoin player after their victory over Wash U. Chris Lord won all four of his matches last week for Bowdoin, including a three-set win over #18 CMS’ Mac Cahill and a clutch 6-3 7-6 (12-10) tiebreaker victory against #11 Wash U. He also picked up easy victories over #12 Trinity (TX) and #21 Carnegie Mellon.
Honorable Mention: Danny Knight (Skidmore)
Warren Wood and Alex Lane (CMS)
Wood went 4-0 at #1 singles and doubles against Hopkins and Bowdoin to lead the Stags to two huge bounce back victories. Both of his singles victories came the third set of 5-4 team victories. His doubles partner, Alex Lane, is equally worthy of the award, only his two singles victories came at #2 singles. After starting the season poorly, Lane clinched the victory for the Stags over Hopkins with a 4-6, 7-6 (4), 6-4 comeback victory over Hopkins’ Tanner Brown.
Honorable Mention: Max Sabel (Pomona-Pitzer)
