Men's Tennis Players Earn All-American Honors
June 17, 2009
Middlebury College men's tennis players Conrad Olson (Waterloo, Belgium), junior Andrew Thomson (W. Bloomfield, Mich.) and rookie David Farah (Flint, Mich.) have all been named to the 2009 ITA Division III Men's All-American Team. The three players helped lead the Panthers to their fifth NESCAC Championship and eighth straight trip to the NCAA's with a record of 21-3.
Olson earns the honor for the second time in his career, after being named the NESCAC Co-Player Of The Year in '09. He ended the season as the top-ranked player in the Northeast, holding down the fifth ranking nationally. He had an impressive showing at the NCAA's, winning three matches to advance to the semifinal round, ending the year with a 19-7 mark in singles play.
Thomson and Farah were solid all spring long in doubles play, ending the year with an 11-6 mark. The duo were ranked fourth in the Northeast and 10th nationally. This marks the third year that Thomson has earned All-American honors.
