CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -
Following a strong 2014 campaign, the Harvard men's tennis team yielded six All-Ivy League honors, the league announced Wednesday. Harvard also saw players earn spots in the NCAA singles and doubles championship fields. 

Junior Denis Nguyen collected the third All-Ivy singles nod of his career, garnering unanimous first-team honors for the second straight season, and joined with partner Casey MacMaster on the first team doubles squad for the second year in a row. Nguyen, who was ranked within the top 50 singles players nationally for the bulk of the season, also earned an at-large selection into the NCAA singles bracket for the first time in his career. Nguyen and MacMaster will also represent the Crimson in the NCAA doubles bracket.  

Rookie Sebastian Beltrame had a solid first season with the Crimson and was named to the All-Ivy second team for singles. Harvard's No. 2 doubles tandem of sophomore Nicky Hu and freshman Brian Yeung also earned second-team honors for doubles. 

The Crimson now turns its attention to the NCAA team tournament, where Harvard will take on Auburn in a first-round matchup at the Oklahoma Regional. The singles and doubles championships will commence May 21 in Athens, Georgia.
