YORK, Pa. – The Salisbury University men's and women's tennis teams were extremely well-represented in the All-Capital Athletic Conference teams, released on Friday, as 11 Salisbury student-athletes combined for a total of 21 All-CAC honors including a CAC Rookie of the Year nod.
Freshman Jillian Poppe (Califon , N.J.) earned that individual honor for the Sea Gulls after a stellar first season in maroon and gold. In addition to the singles first-team accolade, Poppe was also named to the All-CAC first team in doubles. Partner Jackie Burr (Dover, Del.) was also a winner in both singles and doubles as she was named to the first team for both. The senior finishes her career as a Sea Gull having been named an All-CAC singles player three times and All-CAC doubles all four years.
Two other seniors on the women's side finished their careers on a high note, as Kelly Fahrner (Germantown, Md.) and Rachel Iosue (Damascus, Md.) were both named to the second-team singles and doubles squads. The final representative for the women was junior Angela Tenaglia (Clarksville, Md.), whose impressive singles performances this season earned her a spot on the second team.
The men's side saw just as much success, as six Sea Gulls teamed up for 11 total all-conference spots. Seniors Scott Burtzlaff (Clarksville, Md.) and Evan Thomas (Salisbury, Md.) were both named first-team singles and doubles selections. It marks the end of their CAC careers as eight-time All-CAC performers.
Junior David Lupinetti (Walkersville, Md.) was named first-team All-CAC for his singles play. He, along with teammate Marcus Robinson (Cambridge, Md.), was also appointed to the All-CAC doubles second team.
Junior Andrew Nottage (Huntingtown, Md.), and sophomore Daniel Barnas (La Plata, Md.), also received first-team nods for the All-CAC doubles first team. Additionally, both players were second-team selections for their singles play.
