Three tennis players recognized at Block H

Three members of the Hobart College tennis team were recognized at the 2008 Block H Awards Banquet by the Statesmen Athletic Association and the Hobart Athletics Department this spring. Senior Charlie Davis was honored with the Myron V. Jacobs ’37 Award, while junior Adam Cohn took home the William A. Walley ’61 Tennis Award, and first-year Harry King earned the Rookie Award for Tennis. Davis earned the Jacobs Award for his excellence as a tennis player and as a citizen of the Colleges community. A two-time All-Liberty League singles honorable mention selection, Davis led the Statesmen this season at first singles and first doubles. The team captain, he posted a 10-12 mark at No. 1 singles, and finished the year with a 12-14 overall record. Davis teamed with King and first-year Matt Chin for seven wins at No. 1 doubles as well. He was tabbed the league’s Performer of the Week twice, after leading Hobart to an 8-1 victory over St. John Fisher, and again after a strong week of competition over spring break. Davis closed out his career with a 47-43 singles record. The Walley Award went to Cohn for his outstanding sportsmanship, team work, individual play, and leadership. He played 14 matches at second singles and three at third singles. Cohn paired with Chin to play 10 matches at No. 2 doubles, and posted a 2-2 mark with King at second doubles as well. He also represented the Statesmen tennis team on the Student Athlete Advisory Committee this year. King earned the team’s rookie award after earning a 12-11 overall record, splitting time between second, third, and fifth singles. He registered a 4-3 mark at No. 2, went 5-6 at No. 3, and 3-1 at No. 5. He was named the Liberty League Rookie of the Week once, after the Statesmen toppled the Cardinals. Hobart notched an 8-14 record this season, finishing fourth in the Liberty League Championship Tournament.
