VESTAL, N.Y. - Binghamton men’s tennis put four players on the America East Men’s Tennis All-Academic Team, occupying two-thirds of the team. Earning academic recognition were senior Florian van Kann, juniors Ismael Dinia and Robin Lesage and sophomore Alexander Maisin.
van Kann earned the honor for the second straight year. He graduated with a stellar 3.96 grade-point average in management finance. He also was a second team all-conference singles selection.
Dinia also was named to the team for a second consecutive year. He carries a 3.62 GPA in management finance and was a first-team all-conference choice.
Lesage also earned repeat honors, thanks to his lofty 3.92 GPA in management and marketing. Lesage also was a first-team all-conference singles player.
Maisin recorded a 3.79 GPA in system science & industrial engineering and was a first-team all-conference recipient in both singles and doubles.
Under head coach Adam Cohen, the Bearcats have produced 24 All-Academic honorees since 2006 - including a conference-best four in each of the last two years. On the court, BU completed its tenure in the America East with seven straight championships and 10 in the program’s 13 years of membership. The Bearcats will compete in the Mid-American Conference beginning in the fall and will be eligible for that league’s automatic NCAA tournament berth in the spring.
