WALLA WALLA — Several Whitman men’s tennis players filled the All-Northwest Conference teams, announced today as voted upon by the coaches, including Missionary sophomore Colton Malesovas receiving NWC Player of the Year honors, after the No. 15-ranked Whits won their sixth-straight conference title and completed their seventh-consecutive undefeated NWC regular season.
Joining Malesovas on the first team is main doubles partner Andrew La Cava, who earned first-team honors for the third straight season.
Three Missionaries — Sam Sadeghi, Steven Roston and Andy Riggs — all earned second team accolades.
With the conference title under their belt, the Missionaries received an automatic bid to the NCAA tourney and will learn their destination the first week of May.
