The New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) announced its 2009 Men’s Tennis All-Conference Team on Tuesday, with MIT picking up six first-team plaudits. Elia S. Harmatz ’12 was voted Rookie of the Year, marking the Engineers’ second straight selection and fourth overall.

MIT swept the First-Team Doubles awards, with Kevin Pang ’11 and Ken Van Tilburg ’11 leading the way in the No. 1 spot. David E. Iba ‘09 and Brian J. Wee ’12 followed with Harmatz and Peden P. Nichols ’09 rounding out the group.

Van Tilburg received his second straight First Team-selection in the No. 2 singles position as Harmatz received No. 4 singles accolades. Nichols capped his career with his seventh award after being named to the First Team for the No. 5 singles slot.
