Bogaerts was selected to the All-ACC First Team, while Lee and Kan made the All-ACC Third Team. Lee made the squad for the second year in a row, while Kan is the first Wake Forest freshman to earn All-ACC honors since 2010.
A co-captain, Bogaerts has led the Demon Deacons at the No. 1 singles position this season, posting a 24-12 overall record with 10 wins over nationally ranked opponents. He earned the best victory of his career against Oklahoma in March when he defeated Guillermo Alcora, who at the time was ranked No. 2 in the country. Bogaerts has been ranked as high as No. 5 in the national rankings this season.
Wake Forest's lone senior, Lee has risen as high as No. 42 in the national singles rankings and No. 30 in the national doubles rankings this season. A co-captain for the second year in a row, Lee has played mainly at the No. 2 singles position, posting an 18-15 overall record.
One of the top freshmen in the ACC, Kan has posted an impressive rookie season, going 24-11 in singles and 16-8 in dual matches while playing primarily at No. 3. The Cleveland, Ohio native has defeated two top 25 opponents in singles and has been ranked as high as No. 58 himself.
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 14 seasons. The Demon Deacons have had multiple All-ACC honorees in seven of the last eight seasons.
