Stanford men place three on the All-Pac-12 tennis team

 

After completing its best finish since 2012, the Stanford men's tennis team was well-represented again on this year's All-Pac-12 Team, as announced Tuesday by the conference.

Tom Fawcett was named to the first team for the second consecutive year, while teammate David Wilczynski claimed second-team honors and Maciek Romanowicz rounded out the awards with an honorable mention.

Fawcett, coming off a phenomenal rookie campaign in 2015 that saw him post a 26-12 overall record and 14-7 in duals to claim the Pac-12 Freshman of the Year award, stepped up to post an extraordinary sophomore season for an even better 16-6 dual record and 22-8 overall record. Ranked as high as No. 3 during the season, Fawcett also collected 15 wins over ranked opponents as the stalwart of the Cardinal offense in the No. 1 spot. Fawcett cemented himself as the lynchpin of Stanford's success with a team-leading five clinching points on the year, including one over No. 14 Northwestern to advance the Cardinal to the Round of 16.

Fellow sophomore David Wilczynski also collected his second All-Pac-12 award of his career, moving up from an honorable mention in 2015 to a second team honoree after a 15-17 overall record in singles and 6-12 dual record. Wilczynski played the clincher in two matches on the year against Sacramento State and Oregon. In addition, Wilcyznski also laid claim to the USTA/ITA Northwest Regional title in the fall.

Senior Maciek Romanowicz closes out his career with his first All-Pac-12 award with an honorable mention. Romanowicz compiled the best season of his four years at Stanford with a career-best 23-8 overall singles record and 16-5 duals record. In addition, he also comprised half of the ranked doubles duo with Tom Fawcett with another career-best 27-10 overall record and a 15-5 dual record.

The Cardinal wrapped up its 2015-2016 season with its best finish since 2012 when it advanced to the NCAA quarterfinals.
