Johnson State's Chance Swafford and Calvin Henry of Castleton shared NAC East Rookie of the Year honors. Swafford, who earned first team doubles recognition, primarily played the #2 spot for the Badgers posting a 4-1 mark in conference play and teamed with Ryan Joy for a 5-0 record at #1 doubles. Henry was undefeated at #3 singles with a 6-0 mark and was unbeaten in doubles play posting a 5-0 record earning recognition on the all-conference singles first team.
