The Marquette University men's tennis team celebrated its 2011-12 campaign Thursday night at the program's annual awards banquet.
Mamalat, who was named to the All-BIG EAST Team, claimed most valuable player honors for the second-straight season. The Philadelphia, Pa., native led the team in wins and finished with a 21-12 overall record in singles. He was 13-9 in dual competition, playing the No. 1 and No. 2 positions for the Golden Eagles.
Tehrani concluded his rookie campaign with a 20-10 mark in singles, including an 11-6 effort in dual matches. The Paradise Valley, Ariz., native's season included a nine-match winning streak and he was inserted into the singles lineup at each of the bottom three positions throughout the year. For his contributions, Tehrani was named the most improved player on the squad.
Gutierrez Crowley, who battled through and injury-plagued season, earned the Coaches Attitude Award. This honor recognizes the team member with the best work ethic, both on the court and in the classroom. He also claimed the award in 2010-11.
Schwerin, who finished third in school history with 74 career doubles victories, claimed the Academic Award for his dedication in the classroom. The Madison, Wis., native owns a 3.32 GPA and will graduate this month with a degree in finance and marketing.
Award winners were selected in a voting by the Marquette players.
