MASON, Ohio – In a clash of NCAA Division III women's tennis titans it was only fitting that it would take just under five hours to find a difference between the No. 1 ranked Ephs of Williams College and No. 2 ranked Eagles of Emory University.   Eph sophomore Linda Shin prevailed in three sets at number two singles to give Williams a 5-4 win over Emory and its seventh NCAA title in the last eight years under head coach Alison Swain '01. Since 2001 when Williams won its first NCAA title Emory and Williams have combined to win 14 of the last 15 NCAA titles. Williams has won a Division III record nine titles, including a record six in a row, and in that time Emory won five.
