RENO, Nev. -- The University of Nevada men's tennis team has three players that have received all-conference awards, announced by the Mountain West on Wednesday evening.
Nevada had three players that received All-Mountain West awards on Wednesday: senior Victor Ouvrard, junior Moez Chargui, and freshman Robert Allan. Ouvrard headlined the group, as he was named the Mountain West Men's Tennis Player of the Year for 2014. Ouvrard and Chargui were named to the All-MW Singles team, while Ouvrard and Allan were named to the All-MW Doubles team as a pair.
Co-captain Ouvrard paced Nevada, compiling a 22-5 record through 2013-14. He notched a 18-1 mark in dual action, and was unbeaten in conference play at 6-0. Ouvrard is tied for second place with Bryan McQuown for men's career singles victories at Nevada with 69. It's the first Men's Mountian West Player of the Year award for Ouvrard. This is the third conference singles honor for Ouvrard, and the second in the Mountain West (2013). He was named to the Second-team singles for the WAC in 2012.
Chargui compiled a 14-5 record in spring 2014, with an overall record of 18-7 en route to his first Mountain West All-Conference Singles award. He split his matches this season between courts one and two, helping Ouvrard to anchor the top of the line up. This is his second conference award of his career, as he earned the WAC Freshman of the Year award in 2012.
The doubles pair of Ouvrard and Allan has led the charge all season long, posting a 20-4 record through the year, while notching a 15-3 dual action mark. The pair is currently in the national rankings at No. 63, while they have been ranked as high as No. 32 this season. This is the first conference doubles award for either player.
The Wolf Pack will be in action on Thursday as the No. 4 seed in the Mountain West Championships, and will battle No. 5 Fresno State at 10 am. The link to the video of the Mountain West Player of the Year can be found at: http://www.themw.com/#!/video-detail/ljN2pmbTrlOE3e8uAnsTlRxTm-N_L5Ha.
