NAC East Division Men's Tennis All-Conference Announced

Colby-Sawyer junior Nathan Taschereau was chosen as the North Atlantic Conference East Division Men's Tennis Player of the Year in a vote by the conference coaches. Taschereau highlights the 2014 All-Conference selections as announced Friday.

 

Taschereau went unbeaten at first singles and doubles in conference play, leading the Chargers to their third-straight unbeaten NAC East Division season.

 

Taschereau's doubles partner, Myles Utell, earned Rookie of the Year honors, after turning in an unbeaten season playing primarily second singles and first doubles. Joining Taschereau and Utell on the singles first team are Thomas College's Tyler Small and Eric Morin, Green Mountain's Connor Braden, and Castleton's Mike Glaser.

 

The doubles teams of Taschereau and Utell, and Small and Morin were joined on the first team doubles squad by Braden and his partner Nate Berner-Tobin.

 

Green Mountain's Ted Panasci was honored by his peers as Coach of the Year and MCLA was honored with the Team Sportsmanship Award for the second-straight season.

 

NAC all-conference selections are determined by a vote of the conference coaches. Additional players honored are due to ties in the voting. Beginning with the 2010 season, the North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) has partnered with the North Atlantic Conference (NAC) in the sports of men's and women's tennis.  The NEAC will compete as associate members of the NAC men's tennis, while the NAC will compete as associate members of the NEAC in women's tennis.  Members from each conference will be divided into an East and West Division for each sport, with each division holding a championship and the two divisional champions then facing off to determine the conference champion. The conference winner for each sport will earn an automatic bid to the NCAA Division III Championships.
