|David Teres||Brian Williams|
Senior David Teres (Lebanon, N.J./North Hunterdon) of The University of Scranton men's tennis team capped a remarkable career on Wednesday when he was named first-team all-Landmark Conference in both singles and doubles for the third time, according to a release from the conference office.
Fellow senior Brian Williams (Madison, N.J./Madison) earned first-team doubles honors, the first time in his career he earned all-conference honors.
Teres also earned the dual honors in his freshman and junior seasons, and he did not compete during the spring season of his sophomore year because he was studying abroad. He joins Tim McGurrin ('13) as the only men's tennis players in Scranton history to earn first-team honors in singles and doubles three times. McGurrin did it in 2011, 2012 and 2013.
Teres went 7-5 in singles play this season, including 4-2 in Landmark Conference play. Among his four conference wins was a convincing 6-1, 6-2 victory over Juniata freshman Dean Polisena, who was named conference Player of the Year and Rookie of the Year on Wednesday. He finishes his career with a 33-15 mark in singles play.
Teres went 8-3 in doubles play, including 7-2 while teaming with Williams at the No. 1 spot in the doubles lineup. The pair went 5-2 in conference doubles action, with their only losses coming to fellow first-teamers Juan Lorido and Cassian Utrie of Catholic in the regular season and in a Landmark Conference semifinal.
Williams went 8-4 in doubles play this season after earning just six doubles victories in his first three years in the program. He teamed with Teres for the first time in his career, and the duo meshed immediately, winning their first six matches during the spring season. Williams also went 4-9 in singles play this season.
Teres finishes his career with a 32-17 career doubles mark while Williams was 14-16 in his career.
The Royals' finished the season with a 7-5 mark and reached the Landmark Conference playoffs for the eighth straight season, where they suffered a 5-1 semifinal loss to Catholic.
