PRINCETON, N.J. – The Ivy League announced the men’s tennis All-Ivy teams on Thursday afternoon and the duo of senior Xander Centenari and junior Brandon DeBot were honored. After a successful season competing at No. 1 doubles, the tandem earned second team doubles honors.

For the second straight season, the top Dartmouth doubles pair garnered second team accolades as Centenari and DeBot followed in the footsteps of Alex de Chatellus and Michael Laser in 2012.

Centenari and DeBot played in 19 matches together, including 15 at the No. 1 position. They combined to go 12-7 overall and an impressive 5-2 in conference play. The duo opened the league slate with a season-best three consecutive wins and they closed out winning two of their last three as well.

Their most impressive win in Ivy action came against No. 40 Columbia and their two defeats came at the hands of No. 50 Princeton and No. 21 Harvard.

Both Centenari and DeBot earned conference recognition for the first time.

The Big Green concluded their season on April 27 in a home loss to Harvard. Dartmouth finished the year 9-14 overall and 1-6 in the Ivy League.
