Dockhorn is No. 1 Seed

Phillup Dockhorn went from a gym class discovery to ECIC tennis champion in nine months.

The unlikely journey began in September when Dockhorn, a foreign exchange student from Germany, chose tennis as an elective ahead of power walking and football.

"That's when I got my first look at Phillup," said Amherst tennis coach/PE teacher Eric Damiani. "He was just kind of going through the motions, and I was 'Phillup, have you ever played tennis before?' and he said yes, 'I'm very competitive in Germany.'"
