Wheaton trio lauded with weekly NEWMAC honors

NORTON, MA- A trio of Wheaton College men's tennis players earned New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) weekly honors for the week ending on Sunday, April 18. Senior Kyle Hudgins (Uxbridge, MA/Uxbridge) was named singles player of the week, while classmate James Little (Mount Desert, ME/Mount Desert Island) and junior Gregory Poulin (Boxboro, MA/Home Schooled) were lauded as the top doubles tandem.

Hudgins earned his fourth career singles honor, his second of the spring, while Little drew his third doubles accolade. Poulin was last a weekly award winner in 2008, when he and Little sided for the doubles honor.

During Wheaton's lone match of the week, Hudgins downed a Salem State College foe, 6-2, 6-2 in the third position of the Lyons' 8-1 victory on Thursday, improving to 15-4 this season. Little and Poulin combined for an 8-1 win at second doubles, as they are 9-4 as a pairing.

Wheaton finishes its NEWMAC slate today against visiting Babson College at 3:30 p.m.
