BRUNSWICK, Maine - Four members of the Bowdoin College men's tennis team have been named All-Americans by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association.

Junior Luke Tercek (Washington, D.C.) and sophomore Grant Urken (Purchase, N.Y.) were named All-American in singles while the team of junior Kyle Wolfe (Darien, Conn.) and sophomore Jerry Jiang (Qingdao City, China) collected All-American in doubles play.

Tercek played a number one singles this season for the Polar Bears, recording 12 victories, and advancing to the second round of the NCAA individual championship. He ended the year ranked 23rd in the Division III. Urken netted a phenomenal 31-7 record, advancing to the quarterfinals of the NCAA individual bracket and ending the year ranked 15th in the nation.

Wolfe and Jiang earned automatic All-American recognition after winning the ITA Regional Championship last fall, and carried their solid play into the spring, where they finished with a 24-12 overall record.

The quartet helped Bowdoin to a 21-5 overall record and NCAA Semifinal appearance.
