The Harvard men's tennis team earned three All-Ivy League selections, in an announcement made by the league office Thursday evening. Junior Alexei Chijoff-Evans was named to the All-Ivy League first team in singles. The doubles pair of junior Aba Omodele-Lucien and freshman Christo Schultz was also tabbed to the All-Ivy League first team. The tandem of sophomore Alistair Felton and freshman Andy Nguyen earned a spot on the All-Ivy League second team.
Chijoff-Evans posted a 5-2 record in singles action against Ivy League opponents. The junior won four-straight matches at the No. 1 slot and closed out the season with a victory in straight sets in the Crimson's final regular season match against Dartmouth. This marks the second time in Chijoff-Evans' career that he has been selected to the All-Ivy League first team. He was a unanimous selection last season.
Omodele-Lucien and Schultz played at the No. 1 doubles
position for Harvard throughout the year. The duo sported a 4-3
record in matches against Ancient Eight foes. The pair went on a
tear between April 9-17, picking up four consecutive wins.
Omodele-Lucien and Schultz are first-time All-Ivy honorees.
Felton and Nguyen were the Crimson's most dominant doubles team this season. They partnered to go 5-1 in conference action at the No. 2 spot. Felton and Nguyen posted five-straight doubles wins after losing at Columbia in Harvard's first Ivy League contest of the season. The sophomore and freshman earn their first All-Ivy nods of their careers.
Harvard finished in a three-way tie for second in the Ancient Eight with a 5-2 mark.
