FREDERICKSBURG, VA - After finishing as the runner-up a year ago, Johns Hopkins men's tennis junior Andy Hersh brought home the ITA Southeast Regional Singles title Monday afternoon. He is the first ITA Regional Singles champion in program history. He earns All-America honors with the win and will compete in the ITA National Small College Championship October 13-16 in Mobile, AL.

Hersh, who beat four ranked opponents on his way to the title, was seeded seventh in the bracket. He beat teammate and freshman Tanner Brown (seeded ninth) in Monday's semifinal match to advance to the championship match for the second straight year. Hersh prevailed in three sets over fifth-seeded Duke Miller of Carnegie Mellon. He was down 4-2 in the third and final set and battled back to win 7-5 to take the match and the title. On the other half of the draw, freshman Ben Hwang, also seeded ninth, lost to Miller in Monday's other semifinal.

Hersh is the second ITA Regional Champion in program history as he joins David Maldow '10 and Andrew Wang '11 won the 2008 ITA Southeast Doubles title. The win Monday was his eighth of the season and 53rd of his career, moving him into fourth place in school history in career singles wins.
