Emory senior Gabrielle Clark came through with a dominating performance on Saturday in capturing the NCAA Division III Women's Singles Championship in Claremont, California. The No. 1- seeded Clark earned her second NCAA singles crown during her four-year career with a 6-2, 6-1 decision against Jordan Brewer of Amherst.
Clark was superb in her five-match run to the championship, winning in straight sets in each contest while dropping just two games in a particular set on just one occasion.
Clark becomes just the second Emory player in program history to win two national championships, joining Mary Ellen Gordon (2003 and 2004) in that exclusive club. Clark and Gordon are two of three Eagles to have national titles to their credit with Lorne McManigle (2009) the other.
She closes out a stellar stint at Emory with a career singles won-lost slate of 108-21 with her victory ranking second all-time on the Emory chart behind Mary Ellen Gordon's 115 triumphs.
