Senior co-captains Jon Wong and Mihai Nichifor were named first team all-Ivy in singles for their play this spring. Sophomore Haig Schneiderman was named second team all-Ivy in singles, one year after being the unanimous choice for Ivy League Rookie of the Year. Wong went 5-2 at No. 1 singles, Nichifor went 7-0 at No. 2 singles and Schneiderman went 7-0 at No. 3 singles in Ivy play this season.
