Hopkins and Kreyman Named to All-ACC Men's Tennis Team
April 26, 2012
Both players earned all-conference honors for the first time after splitting time this season at the top two positions in the Wake Forest lineup.
Hopkins led the Demon Deacons with a 27-11 doubles record, including a 20-9 mark in dual matches. He partnered Amogh Prabhakar at the No. 1 doubles position for the majority of the season, going 8-3 against ACC opposition and rising as high as No. 45 in the national rankings. The duo are currently ranked No. 49 nationally.
The senior from Winston-Salem was also strong for the Deacons in singles, going 17-11 in dual matches, including 9-2 at the No. 2 position. He posted the best win of his career in Wake Forest's final ACC match, topping No. 48 Juan Spir of Georgia Tech in straight sets.
Kreyman also excelled in doubles, teaming with Adam Lee to tie the Wake Forest single-season record for ACC doubles wins, going 9-2 in conference matches while playing primarily at the No. 2 position.
The junior from Long Beach, N.Y. also defeated six ranked players in singles, with his best win of the year coming in a 6-0, 6-2 domination of No. 47 Max Wennakoski of VCU. He led the Demon Deacons with 26 singles wins this season and has reached the 20-win plateau in each of his first three seasons at Wake Forest.
Wake Forest is one of only four schools, along with Duke, Florida State and North Carolina to put at least one player on the All-ACC team in each of the past 12 seasons. The Demon Deacons have had multiple All-ACC honorees in five of the last six seasons.
Conference-champion Virginia swept the ACC individual awards. Jarmere Jenkins was named ACC Player of the Year, and the nation's top-ranked singles player Mitchell Frank took home ACC Freshman of the Year honors. Cavalier skipper Brian Boland was named ACC Coach of the Year.
