BRUNSWICK, Maine – Bowdoin men's tennis player Sam King (Rye Brook, N.Y.) has received All-NESCAC honors following his senior campaign.

Earning All-Conference First Team in doubles play last season, the senior landed his first singles recognition with a Second Team selection for 2013-14. Playing all 19 of his matches in the No. 3 spot, King tallied a 13-5 overall record. Eight of the senior's spring wins came against nationally ranked teams, including a (6-1, 6-4) decision against Williams' Rohan Shastri and a (6-0, 6-0) match against Trinity's Rutendo Matingo in the opening round of NESCAC playoffs. King also defeated nationally-ranked players from Wash U and Emory.

King also received the Athletic Department's Academic Achievement Award for Men at the school's annual All-Sports Banquet on Thursday evening.

The Bowdoin men's tennis team returns to action Saturday in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. The Polar Bears will play begin their tournament play against the winner of today's MIT/Nichols first-round match at Amherst College.
