Nassau Wins D3 Men's Tennis National Championship

Congratulations to the Nassau Community College Men's Tennis Team, which claimed the 2014 NJCAA Division III National Championship in Plano, Texas. The Lions, who were undefeated in match play again this season, were favored in this year's national tournament, but it came down to the last doubles finals for them to clinch the title. It was the first NJCAA Division III Men's Tennis Championship for Nassau since 2001 and the first for Head Coach Cheryl Novins.

While the entire team played extremely well and earned points throughout the tournament, the All-American 1st Team players from Nassau are: Mike Nelson (2nd singles), Jace Koretz (3rd singles), Roey Heymann & Mike Nelson (1st doubles), and Jace Koretz & Dan Baruch (2nd doubles). Nassau's Roey Heymann was named the NJCAA Division III Coaches Association Player of the Year. Head Coach Cheryl Novins was named the Max Grubbs NJCAA Division III National Coach of the Year. ?
