PRINCETON, N.J. – Four members of the Dartmouth men’s tennis team received post-season awards from the Ivy League, as announced on Thursday.

For the second time in the past three seasons, Chris Drake was named Coach of the Year. Sophomores Charlie Broom and David Horneffer were named first team All-Ivy for both singles and doubles, while freshman Dan Martin was selected to the second team for singles. 

Throughout his eight years at the helm of the Big Green program, Drake has accumulated an overall record of 121-69 and 34-22 in conference play. The last (and first) time he was named Coach of the Year was at the conclusion of the 2015-16 season when the team tied for second in the Ivy League and received an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 1997. In 2014-15, Drake was named the ITA Northeast Regional Coach of the Year.

One of two unanimous selections to the first team, Broom played at No. 1 singles all season, going 17-12 overall and 13-6 during the spring and dropped just one match during Ivy play. During the last week of the regular season, he found himself in the ITA national rankings at No. 114. 

Horneffer played at both the No. 2 and 3 positions throughout the season, going undefeated with a 7-0 mark at the No. 2 spot and 9-3 at No. 3 throughout dual matches. He was unbeaten in conference action after taking down players from Yale, Brown, Cornell, No. 15 Columbia and Princeton and going unfinished against Harvard and Penn.

Together, Broom and Horneffer are an unstoppable pair. After seven straight wins at the No. 1 position to start the spring, the duo sprang into the national rankings at No. 19 and, for the next two and a half months, remained in the top 60 in the country. They took down two ranked doubles teams throughout the year and went 3-0 in Ivy play.

During his first collegiate season, Martin went 16-11 in singles overall and 9-8 in dual matches. He played at the No. 2 and 3 positions, going 5-6 at No. 2 and 4-2 at No. 3. After a good start to the spring, he spent a few weeks in the national rankings, starting off at No. 101.

Dartmouth ended the regular season with a record of 20-5 and 6-1 in Ivy play, winning a share of the conference title with Columbia and earning the league’s NCAA automatic bid. The Big Green will continue their season at TCU, facing Oregon in the first round on May 12.
