Pearlman Named to All-Ivy League First Team in Singles

PRINCETON, N.J. – Junior Jonathan Pearlman received first team All-Ivy League accolades Thursday for his success as the Crimson's No. 1 singles player this year, his first as a member of the Harvard men's tennis team.

Pearlman played No. 1 singles for Harvard in 22 of 25 duals this spring and finished the year with a 19-17 singles record. He was 5-2 against Ivy League opponents, and went an even 11-11 during the spring dual season. Pearlman's biggest win of the spring came against the then-No. 12 singles player in the country, Austen Childs of Louisville, 6-3, 6-2, March 6. He closed the 2011 regular season with three straight singles victories at No. 1 against Yale, Brown and Dartmouth.

In the fall, Pearlman reached round four of the ITA Northeast Region Indoor Championship. He also went undefeated (3-0) and was named singles champion at the Harvard Winter Classic, Jan. 21-23.

Princeton's Matija Pecotic was a unanimous selection for Ivy League Player of the Year, and Brown's Brandon Burke received Ivy League Rookie of the Year honors.
