Zach Charles Named to All-Conference Men’s Tennis Team for Fourth Consecutive Year
Yeshiva University Men’s Tennis standout Zach Charles was selected by the coaches of the Skyline Conference to the 7-man All Conference First Team, which was announced this morning by the league office. Charles makes his fourth appearance on the first team, an accomplishment that speaks to his talent and love for the game.
Zach had one his best season this year, which is not yet done, winning 7 of his 9 singles matches. His only losses this season at first singles came to First Team member Brendan Keeling of Purchase and the conference’s Player of the Year from Farmingdale, Justin Vijungco. In doubles play, Zach is currently 6-3, playing all matches in the first position. Yeshiva has one remaining match, against Sarah Lawrence, on May 2.
Zach has always played first doubles and first singles matches, and holds a career record of 21-12 in singles play and 18-16 in doubles play (not including matches that injuries forced him to retire from). “Zach has been a critical part of the YU tennis program for the last four years”, said Men’s Tennis Coach Jeff Menaker. “His legacy as a top singles player in the Skyline Conference will endure. It has been a pleasure coaching him these past two seasons.”
“It is an honor to be voted to the First Team all 4 years of my career”, said Chalres. “I really appreciate my opponents recognizing the work I’ve put in over the years. I also have to thank my coach, teammates and athletic staff for their help these years. It’s been a great ride and I am glad to leave on top.”
