Stanford represented on tennis All-American teams

 

Taylor Davidson and Caroline Doyle, two of the key components to Stanford's women's tennis national championship in the spring, were named ITA All-Americans in doubles.

Sophomore Tom Fawcett was named an All-American in singles.

In order to be selected as an ITA All-American, a singles player must be a top-16 seed or reach the round of 16 in the NCAA Singles Championship, or finish in the top 20 of the final ITA rankings.

Davidson and Doyle, teamed together for the first time last fall, finished 22-12 overall and ranked No. 11 in the nation.

After practicing for a week, the pair won the fall ITA Northwest Regional title and advanced to the national championships in New York.

Fawcett, coming off a phenomenal rookie campaign in 2015 that saw him post a 26-12 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 and finishing the season ranked No. 10, 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.

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