The singles matches saw equal excitement as the two teams battled to a 3-3 score before Jeremy Yuan secured a vital point for Chicago on court 2 to move Chicago within striking distance of the title. The match now rested on courts 4 & 5 and Chicago freshman Alex Guzhva maintained his perfect start to the season in 3-set matches to close out the title with a 6-4, 2-6, 6-3 victory. The win snapped Emory's streak of indoor titles and saw the top seed follow through on its ranking to remain the top team in the country for Division 3. "This one has been a long time coming" coach Jay Tee said. "We've lost a few finals in the past, and we've dropped some close ones with Emory, but this time I felt like we weren't scared and that was the key to getting it done today." Congratulations to The University of Chicago on their win and to all the teams able to reach the tournament and compete.
