2012 All-NCAC Men's Tennis Squad Announced
Kenyon junior Paul Burgin (Baltimore, MD/Pikesville) has been named Player of the Year and freshman Mike Razumovsky (Baltimore, MD/Pikesville) has been selected as Newcomer of the Year to highlight the 2012 All-North Coast Athletic Conference men's tennis selections.
Burgin, a two-time first-team All-NCAC selection and three-time all-conference honoree, has compiled a 15-6 record in singles this spring. He is joined on the first team by three other repeat first-team selections: Allegheny's Pat Cole (Livonia, MI/University of Detroit Jesuit), Denison's Tom Cawood (East Lansing, MI/East Lansing) and Wabash's Wade Miller (Crawfordsville, IN/North Montgomery). Cole, the 2011 Newcomer of the Year, recorded a 17-4 record, Cawood posted a 14-3 record and Miller recorded a 15-13 record, all at first singles. DePauw sophomore Sam Miles (Indianapolis, IN/Park Tudor) rounds out the first-team all-conference selections after posting a 13-14 record at first singles for the Tigers.
Razumovsky was voted Newcomer of the Year with a 14-4 record in singles competition. He leads the Lords at second singles with a 13-4 mark and has played one match at the top spot, earning the victory. He has also posted a 14-4 record at first and second doubles with junior teammate C.J. Williams (Richmond, VA/St. Christopher's). Razumousky earned first-team honors in singles, and along with WIlliams, earned second-team recognition in doubles.
Cawood was also selected to the first team in doubles, with partner Tim Martin (Oak Park, IL/Oak Park-River Forest) while fellow Denison seniors Matt McErlean (Hudson, OH/Hudson) and Tyler Cempre (Worthington, OH/Thomas Worthington) also represented the Big Red with first-team doubles honors. DePauw senior Eric Hubbard (Ann Arbor, MI/Pioneer) and junior David Moss (Indianapolis, IN/North Central) were the final first-team doubles selection.
Kenyon head coach Scott Thielke was named the men's tennis Coach of the Year by vote of the league coaches for the fifth time in his career and the first since 2009. Thielke has guided the Lords to a 20-4 record and their sixth-straight NCAC Championship. He is 290-114 in his 16 seasons at the helm of the Kenyon men's program.
