NCAA-bound BU men's tennis sweeps America East honors
Cohen named Coach of Year, Vloedgraven Player of Year, Devos top rookie

America East All-Conference Team

VESTAL, N.Y. -- After rolling to the program's third straight America East championship and ensuing NCAA berth, No. 47 BU men's tennis (25-1) has garnered nearly all the top honors from the conference. The Bearcats seized all three major awards, swept all six first-team singles spots and took two of the three first-team doubles honors with the other tandem earning second-team distinction.

Head coach Adam Cohen was selected as Coach of the Year for the second time in three years after steering the Bearcats to one of the most successful seasons in any sport in school history.

Junior No. 1 Sven Vloedgraven was named Player of the Year for the second consecutive season after gaining a national ranking, winning the ITA regional singles title and earning the first NCAA singles berth of any America East member school. Vloedgraven also was a first-team all-conference selection at both first singles and first doubles.

Freshman No. 6 Ruben Devos earned Rookie of the Year honors after going 21-8 in singles and 22-13 in doubles. Devos earned first team all-conference in singles and second team all-conference at the third doubles position.

Senior Moshe Levy, named the Most Outstanding Performer at the America East Championship, earned first team honors at No. 2 singles and No. 2 doubles. Junior Gilbert Wong was a first-team choice at No. 3 singles and No. 1 doubles. Sophomore Alexandre Haggai (No. 4 singles, No. 2 doubles) also was a double first-team honoree. Junior co-team MVP Arnav Jain was the top pick at No. 5 singles, where he has produced an undefeated dual meet season (23-0). Freshman Bastian Bornkessel combined with Devos to earn second team all-conference honors at No. 3 doubles.

Binghamton will face 24th-ranked Georgia Tech in the opening round of the NCAA Championship, May 14 in Lexington.
