HUNTINGTON, Ind. - The Crossroads League has announced its 2013-14 Men’s Tennis All-Conference selections and among the list of honorees is HU’s top four players Vlad Khudziy, Joseph Straznicky, Jose Hungria and Diego Inurritegui.

This foursome combined for 44 wins against a mere three losses in the conference regular season on the way to guiding the team to a share of the regular season conference title along with Grace and Indiana Wesleyan.

Headlining the news is senior Vlad Khudziy who earned his four consecutive All-Conference honor. The Moscow native is indisputably the league’s top player as he went undefeated in league play at #1 singles with an unblemished 8-0 record to go along with a 7-1 record in doubles play.

Playing #2 singles and doubles, Joseph Straznicky was a dominate force at both spots in conference play. He teamed up with Diego Inurritegui at No. 2 doubles to go undefeated at 8-0 while dropping only one match in singles action for a 7-1 record.

An All-Conference pick as a freshman, Hungria earned his second All-Conference accolade this season. He has racked up his fair share of wins in conference play, boasting a perfect 7-0 record at #1 doubles and accumulating six wins against one loss at the No. 3 singles spot.

Inurritegui rounds out the All-Conference honorees for HU. He went undefeated in conference play, posting eight wins at #4 singles and just as many at #2 doubles.

The Foresters wrapped up the fall portion of their schedule with an overall record of 11-4.
