ROCK HILL, SC -- Catawba placed two players on the both the men’s and women’s 2009 All-South Atlantic Conference Tennis teams as announced by the conference at a banquet on Thursday night.  For the men, senior Sean Soltan (Vetlanda, SWEDEN/Njudungsgymnasiet) was a first team pick, while freshman Matt King (Concord, NSW, AUSTRALIA/Sydney Boys) was a second team selection.  Earning second team honors on the women’s side was sophomore Kasia Zielinski (Erie, PA/Collegiate Academy) and freshman Jen Denyes (Bradenton, FL/St. Stephens Episcopal HS).

Carson-Newman’s Amanda Bartlett was the women’s Player of the Year, while Alessandro du Besse, took home men’s Player of the Year honors.   Freshman of the Year honors went to Mars Hill's Erika Pinate and Lenoir-Rhyne's John Fichardt.  Paul Thompson, of Brevard, was named women’s Coach of the Year, while Wingate’s Michael Cabana, a former Catawba standout, was named men’s Coach of the Year.  The scholar athlete awards went to Carson-Newman Elizabeth Sneed and Tusculum’s Hunter Beal.

Soltan played #1 for Catawba and posted a 12-8 singles mark on the season.  In doubles, he was 9-12, also playing at #1.  For his career, Soltan finished seventh all-time in both singles (54) and doubles (53) wins.  King saw action at #2 singles and doubles.  He recorded a 14-7 mark in singles and was 16-6 in doubles.

Zielinski saw action at both #1 and #2 singles for the Catawba women after returning from a knee injury last season.  She also played #1 doubles.  Denyes also split time at the top two singles positions, winning six matches on the year.  She teamed mainly with Zielinski at #2 doubles where the duo won four matches.
