Four Corsair Men's Tennis Players Named All-Conference

Aug. 2, 2010

NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA-Four members of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth's men's tennis team have earned Little East Conference post-season honors.

Freshman Mike Parker (Scituate, MA/Scituate HS) was named second team All-Conference at number two singles, while sophomore Alex Ciampi (Chelmsford, MA/Chelmsford HS) was named second team at number six singles. Sophomore Mike Fink (Sagamore Beach, MA/Sturgis Charter) and freshman Cody Zygmont (Swansea, MA/Case/HS) earned second team All-LEC honors at number three doubles.

Parker compiled an 8-2 record at number two singles, 4-2 against LEC foes, while Ciampi was 6-3 at number three doubles, 3-3 against LEC competition. Fink and Zygmont compiled a 6-3 record in doubles, going 4-2 against conference foes.

"I think it's great that they were honored," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Tom Mendell. "All of them are freshmen or sophomores, so they will be back next year. Considering how many players we lost from the previous year's team, I think all of them stepped up and did a fantastic job."

The Corsairs went 5-6 last spring and advanced to the LEC post-season tournament.
