FLORENCE, S.C. – The Peach Belt Conference (PBC) held its year-end awards ceremony Thursday night, with No. 25 Georgia College Men's Tennis bringing in plenty of hardware.
Senior Pedro Ecenarro (Santiago de Compostella, Spain) was named first team singles, while junior Jannik Kumbier (Neumunster, Germany) brought in second team singles and a second team doubles honor with teammate Robin Moller (Hamburg, Germany).
Ecenarro, the 2015 PBC Freshman of the Year, brings in his first All-PBC honor thanks to a 13-4 singles record on the top line, including 7-2 in PBC play. He pulled in three wins against nationally-ranked competition in six tries.
Kumbier notched a team-best 14-3 mark in second singles. He was also 8-1 in conference play. The duo of Kumber and Moller posted an 11-6 record and 6-3 against PBC opponents. For both Kumbier and Moller, this is their first career postseason honors.
