Wil Spencer Claims Division I Men's Tennis Singles Title for Georgia Bulldogs

On Monday morning, while you and I were griping about it being a Monday morning, Wil Spencer was busy winning the Division I men’s tennis singles title at the Southern Intercollegiate Championships. The victory at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex gave Georgia its 18th win in 44 tries at the country’s oldest autumnal collegiate tennis tourney. Spencer was one of four Bulldogs to make the quarterfinals, and one of three to reach the semifinal round.

In the finals, the sixth-ranked Spencer faced the top-seeded player in the field, No. 3 Eric Quigley, who may or may not have done a striptease in a graveyard in "Return of the Living Dead" or been portrayed by Tom Selleck in a movie about a gunslinger in Australia.

Spencer’s 5-2 lead in the first set of the championship match evaporated when Quigley rallied to take a 6-5 advantage, but the Georgia senior forced a tiebreaker, won the set, and leapt out to a 2-0 lead in the second set before winning, 7-6(6), 6-3.

The Red and Black’s fall tennis schedule continues next weekend, when the Bulldogs will travel to Atlanta for the Georgia Tech Invitational.
