Instead, the Oklahoma rising sophomore ended up winning the entire tournament.

Van Emburgh didn’t drop a set in six matches last week, defeating Alabama’s Edison Ortiz 7-6(4), 7-6(6) in the final at TCU’s Bayard Friedman Tennis Center to earn automatic entry into the ITA All-American Championships and $3,000 in prize money.

“There was a lot on the line between the wild card and the prize money, so it felt good to win,” said Van Emburgh, a Florida native. “I haven’t won a tournament since last fall, so it’s nice to get a title and go into the year strong.”

Wisconsin fifth-year senior Sara Castellano won the women’s singles title and reached the women’s doubles final to secure two spots in the ITA All-American Championships. The Italy native defeated Florida rising sophomore Victoria Emma 6-1, 6-4 in the singles final. Castellano and fellow Badger Lexi Keberle lost to the Kansas duo of Nina Khmelnitchkaia and Janet Koch 8-5 in the doubles final.

TCU’s Alex Rybakov and Max Kurzban pleased the hometown crowd by capturing the men’s doubles title. Rybakov and Kurzban defeated Nikolas Moceanu and Alexandru Grigorescu 8-6 in the final to become the first pair in TCU history to win a title at the summer championships.
