Former Santa Clara standout John Lamble '14, winner of 81 career singles matches during his time as a Bronco, captured his first professional title in doubles over the weekend.
Partnering with Alan Kohen from Argentina, the duo rolled through the field at the USA F23 Futures event in Edwardsville, Ill. en route to the final on Sunday. In the tournament-deciding match, Lamble and Kohen came back to down the Great Britain pairing of Scott Clayton and Richard Gabb by a score of 3-6, 7-6(4), 10-7.
"I'm very proud of John and the momentous accomplishment that he has just accomplished in his professional career," said Santa Clara Head Coach Derek Mills. "John was a terrific player when he was a Bronco and I'm happy that he has continued his success at the next level."
While competing at Santa Clara, Lamble racked up three All-WCC Doubles Team awards, two All-WCC Singles accolades, and was a highly ranked player in the conference as well as the Northwest Region on a consistent basis. The Saratoga, Calif. native ranks second all-time on both Santa Clara's singles and doubles wins lists. In his final year on the Mission Campus in 2013-14, Lamble tallied 21 victories in singles competition and completed a near-perfect 15-2 mark in doubles action.
