Thompson Crowned Champion at So. Cal Intercollegiates

Nov. 7, 2011

LOS ANGELES - Playing on his home courts, sophomore men's tennis player Clay Thompson posted a straight-set victory in the singles final at the 55th Southern California Intercollegiate Championships on Monday at UCLA's Los Angeles Tennis Center.

The third-seeded Thompson, who did not drop a set in five matches during the tournament, took home the title after notching a 7-5, 6-4 win over unseeded Patrick Kawka of BYU. He becomes the first UCLA player to win the singles championship at the Southern California Intercollegiates since 2006, when Michael Look defeated teammate Mathieu Dehaine in the final that year.

It marks the end to an impressive week for Thompson, who also reached the doubles final with teammate Alex Brigham. The Bruin duo came up just short, falling to USC's Emilio Gomez and Yannick Hanfmann, 8-4.
