Men's Tennis Postseason Honors Announced
May 11, 2017

Highly competitive regular season action leads to All-Big 12 Tennis postseason awards, as selected by the league's head coaches.

TCU's Cameron Norrie was named Player of the Year, as Oklahoma State's Artur Dubinski was chosen Newcomer of the Year and Texas' Christian Sigsgaard earns freshman of the Year. The Horned Frogs' David Roditi earns his third straight Coach of the Year honor.

Norrie boasted an 18-1 regular season record this past season, with a perfect 5-0 mark in Big 12 play. The junior ended the regular season on an eight-match win streak and is ranked No. 1 in the ITA national polls.

Roditi led his squad to a second straight Big 12 regular season title. The Horned Frogs posted a 19-4 record and No. 6 national rank. Roditi guided his team to an NCAA Championship bid, with TCU as the six seed.

Dubinski concluded his first campaign at Oklahoma State with a 9-6 overall record. He helped lead the Cowboys to a No. 11 NCAA championship seed and fourth consecutive appearance.

Sigsgaard posted a 25-5 mark on the season and posted a 1-3 clip in conference play. The freshman closed out his first season in Austin by helping the Longhorns to a No. 10 national seed and 26th consecutive bid to the NCAA Championship.
