Courtney Wins Mid-Atlantic Clay Court Title

MIDLOTHIAN, Va. – Rising sophomore Drew Courtney (Clifton, Va.) won the singles title at the 2009 Mid-Atlantic Clay Court Championship last week at the Salisbury Country Club. The event featured top collegiate and professional players from 12 different states.

Courtney didn’t drop a set in his five victories in the tournament. Seeded No. 7, he defeated top-seeded UVa teammate Sanam Singh (Chandigarh, India) in the semifinals and No. 2 seed David McNamara in the final.

"It was a fun week, getting a chance to play in front of some good crowds at the tournament," said Courtney. "They said it was one of, if not the strongest field they have ever had for the event, so to win the tournament was great. It felt good to get some matches against some great opponents under my belt."

Singh captured the doubles title, teaming with former Cavalier Milo Johnson. In the final, the fourth-seeded duo upset the No. 1 seed of McNamara and Jay Udwadia 2-6, 6-2, 6-4.

In addition to Courtney, Singh and Johnson, the tournament included several other players with Virginia ties, including volunteer assistant coach Derek Schwandt and former Cavalier All-American Huntley Montgomery.
