Amherst eliminates Emory in quarters again

CLAREMONT, Calif. -- Amherst punched its ticket to a second consecutive NCAA national semifinal with a 5-1 victory against Emory at the Biszantz Family Tennis Center.

Downing Emory in the quarterfinals for the second year in a row, the Jeffs improved to 3-0 all-time against the Eagles in NCAA play. Extending its win streak to five, Amherst (34-3) will now face Trinity (Texas), which beat Washington (Mo.) 5-1. Tuesday’s semifinal match is slated for 2 p.m. ET.

Staking the Jeffs to an early advantage, sophomore standouts Aaron Revzin and Andrew Yaraghi dispatched of Ayush Bajoria and Jackson Isaacs at second doubles 8-4. Opening up a four-game cushion on Eric Halpern and Simon Lavoie-Perusse in the third slot, Michael Solimano and Chris Dale quickly doubled the Jeff advantage with an 8-3 triumph.

Trailing Alex Ruderman and Ian Wagner at No. 1 (5-3), Joey Fritz and Justin Reindel battled back to knot it at 6-6. Still tied at 8-8, Emory’s duo staved off the Jeffs’ comeback bid, eventually recording a hard-fought 9-8 (9-7) win.

Capturing the first set of his third singles match against Raffaello Mosetick (6-4), Solimano jumped out to a commanding 5-0 lead in the second en route to a 6-1 decision. Taking the first frame of a No. 2 singles showdown against Halpern (6-1), Dale went up 5-3 in the second set before inching the Purple & White closer to victory by downing his Emory counterpart 6-4. Clinching it for Amherst, Reindel notched a pair of identical 6-3, 6-3 wins against Will Adams at the bottom of the order.
