Seniors Roberto Perez (Pozuelo de Alarcon, Spain) and Victor Vu (Los Angeles, Calif.) garnered all-conference accolades in both singles and doubles, while classmate Isaac Thylen (Surfside, Fla.) earned a spot on the All-NEWMAC singles team. Additionally, fellow senior Saif Rahim (Hong Kong) and first-year Brandon Rosenbluth (Pound Ridge, N.Y.) both collected all-league doubles recognition.
