HADLEY, Mass. – The 12th-ranked Wesleyan University men's tennis team placed a program record four Cardinals on the NESCAC Men's Tennis All-Conference Teams, as announced by the league office Thursday. Senior Steven Chen highlighted the list for the Cardinals as he was named to the First Team, while Tiago Eusebio '18, Princeton Carter '20 and Andrew Finkelman '21 were each named Second Team selections.
Chen picked up his fourth All-Conference nod of his career and his third straight First Team laurel. The senior All-American from San Diego, Calif., owns a 20-8 overall singles record this season and is 10-6 at #1 in dual matches. He will also represent Wesleyan at the NCAA Division III Individual Championships, alongside Finkelman, for the third straight year.
Carter and Eusebio were both named Second Team All-NESCAC selections in doubles play, marking the first All-Conference award for both athletes. The duo was paired together for the first time on April 8 and shined in the #1 spot. They finished the season with a 6-5 overall mark in dual match play, including two wins over Little Three archival Amherst.
Finkelman has excelled in his first season donning the Cardinal uniform. The freshman picked up Second Team honors in singles play after posting a 19-10 overall record and 9-7 mark in dual match play. He's 2-0 in #1 singles and 7-7 in the #2 spot.
