First-Round Match #14

CJ Krimbill ('16) is one of the top tennis players in the history of CWRU, and his career accolades include an NCAA Doubles Championship in 2014, the first national title in the program's history. He finished his career as a four-time singles All-American and a three-time doubles All-American, while also being named the 2015 UAA Most Valuable Player, and is the only player in program history to be named to the All-UAA team as a singles player four times. He is the program's all-time leader in both singles (107-31) and doubles (123-30) victories. Read more about CJ in his online bio.

Nate Wahner ('17) topped former diver Connor Farrell in the play-in match to advance to the first round of the tournament. He ranks as one of the top sprinters in the program's record books, and is the current holder of nine school-record times. He was named the Most Outstanding Performer at the 2017 UAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships, claiming conference titles in the 200m Dash and 400m Dash, and as the anchor leg of both the 4x100m and 4x400m relays. Wahner totaled seven UAA Championships and nine All-UAA honors over his career as a Spartan, and was an NCAA qualifier during both the indoor and outdoor campaigns as a senior.
