Zakrevski And McGaffigan Selected To All-Skyline Teams

KINGS POINT, N.Y. (May 6, 2019) – The Skyline Conference announced the postseason award winners and All-Conference Teams for men's tennis on Monday and two members of the USMMA tennis team were recognized for their performances for the Mariners this year. Senior Daniel Zakrevski (Forest Hills, N.Y.) was selected by the conference head coaches to the All-Skyline First Team, while junior Justin McGaffigan (Quincy, Mass.) earned an All-Skyline Second Team selection. 

Zakrevski spent the entire season on the #1 doubles pairing this year, most of the year with McGaffigan as his partner, and also spent a majority of the campaign at #1 singles for the Mariners. He compiled five wins in doubles action, including two in Skyline play, while also winning five singles competitions on the year, with a 3-3 record in conference action. He was named the Skyline Player of the Week back on April 1. 

This is McGaffigan's second career selection to the All-Skyline Second Team, as he also received a spot on the team after his freshman season back in 2017. McGaffigan split doubles time at #1 and #2 throughout the year, boasting six wins with a 4-3 record in Skyline action. In singles play, the junior tied for the team-lead with six wins, going 5-2 out of the #2 flight, and was 4-3 in Skyline play.
