GREENVILLE, S.C. -- Emma Davis put a cap on her successful sophomore season debut Sunday by winning Singles Flight 2 of the Furman Fall Classic as Wake Forest women's tennis posted a 7-1 record throughout the final day of the tournament.

The Demon Deacons picked up victories in each of the six singles draws on Sunday.
