Juneau, MacTaggart Named First Team All-Big Ten
April 26, 2012
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Juniors Isade Juneau and Josh MacTaggart of Indiana men's tennis have been named first team All-Big Ten honorees, the conference announced. Juneau is IU's 34th different player to earn all-conference accolades. MacTaggart was a second-team honoree last season and is the 11th player in school history to earn All-Big Ten distinction in multiple seasons. In five seasons at Indiana, Randy Bloemendaal's teams have produced six All-Big ten players, who have earned the honors eight times.
Juneau is 23-11 this season, playing exclusively at number one singles and is 22-15 in doubles play at number one doubles. The junior went 6-5 in Big Ten play and scored a pair of wins over ranked singles opponents this season. In doubles, Juneau and Jeremy Langer posted three doubles victories over ranked tandems this season.
MacTaggart is 34-9 on the season, and finished the Big Ten schedule 8-3 in singles and 7-4 in doubles, playing at number two in both. MacTaggart has defeated six ranked singles players this season and his 34 singles wins are tied for IU's single-season record. With 90 career singles wins and 77 career doubles wins, he is on pace to break IU's all-time records for both career singles and career doubles victories next season.
The Hoosiers play Minnesota on Friday in second-round action at the Big Ten Tournament. For complete coverage of all things IU men's tennis, stay tuned to IUHoosiers.com.
