Rosa was named third team All-Conference in No. 4 singles. Fuca garnered two All-Conference selections, third team in No. 5 singles and second team in No. 3 doubles. Gilman, Fuca's main doubles partner, was chosen to the second team in No. 3 doubles as well. Au earned a first team All-Conference selection in No. 6 singles, and was placed on the All-Rookie team as well.
The All-Conference selections are based on a player's record in NE10 matches during the regular season in a that flight.
Rosa is on an All-Conference team for the third season in his four year Bentley career, after being named third team in No. 4 singles and No. 3 doubles in his freshman and sophomore years, respectively. In 2016-17, he went 4-3 in No. 4 matches, in addition to 2-0 in No. 3 matches, for an overall NE10 record of 6-3.
Fuca is a two-time All-Conference honoree for the second straight season, after he made the first team in No. 5 singles and No. 3 doubles as a freshman. This season, he posted a 5-1 record in No. 5 singles. His overall NE10 singles record of 7-1 was the best on the team.
In doubles, he and Gilman went 7-1 in No. 3 doubles. The pair's 8-1 overall record in NE10 matches was also the Falcons' best. Gilman is also a repeat All-Conference pick, after he made the first team in both No. 6 singles and No. 3 doubles as a freshman.
Au went 3-0 in No. 6 singles to garner a first team selection in that flight. He also went 2-0 in No. 5 singles for a 5-0 record in NE10 singles, which helped his selection to the All-Rookie team as well. He is currently on a seven-match winning streak in singles.
After Tuesday's 5-1 first round win over Le Moyne, the Falcons are set to take on top seed Southern New Hampshire today in the semifinals.
