Lang, a Vienna, Austria product, registered a big week for the Blue Raiders, going 3-0 in singles to play help Middle Tennessee take first place in the MT Shootout over the weekend. Lang set the tone for MT in the first round against DePaul, winning the first singles point by defeating Mathias Hambach, 6-3, 7-5.
From there, Lang continued his hot play in the second round with a 6-2, 6-2, match-clinching victory over South Alabama's Gerhar Gruindelingh.
