Athletics - posted on 5/19/2010
The Lakeland men's tennis team held a year-end team banquet to celebrate its third-place finish in the Northern Athletics Conference last Thursday, May 13.
Several team awards were distributed by coach Doron Green, a member of the Lakeland Athletic Hall of Fame who is in his third year at the helm of the program.
Freshman Andrew McGlashen earned Most Valuable Player honors. The Southampton, England, native lost just seven games in the NAC Tournament en route to a No. 2 singles championship. McGlashen also teamed with Jacob Halverson to finish second at No. 2 doubles.
McGlashen dominated league competition, finishing 7-0 in the regular season to go along with an 18-4 overall mark.
Freshman Dane Maier took home the Rookie of the Year award. Maier, who is also a member of the Lakeland men's volleyball team, placed second at No. 6 singles and fifth, along with Yuki Shiono, at No. 3 doubles in the conference tournament. The Middleton, Wis., native finished the season at 5-3 in NAC singles play.
The Sportsmanship Award, assessed to the player who appreciates the game and positively affects those around him, went to Shiono. A Gummu, Japan, native, Shiono placed fifth at No. 4 singles and was 4-3 against league competition during the regular season.
For the second consecutive season, Carlos Millan (Glenview, Ill.) received the Dave Lauer Award, given to the player who exemplifies what any coach could ask for in how they represent the program on and off the court around the campus community. In addition to being a valued member of the team, Millan, a senior, was highly involved in other activities on campus, including work with the Lakeland Mirror
and the Lakeland yearbook.
Special recognition went to senior Andre Glass, who captured his fourth consecutive NAC title at No. 1 singles. The Kenosha, Wis., native suffered just one defeat in his career during conference play. He finished the season 16-4 overall and 7-0 in the NAC.
