Bluffton University sophomore Matt Weisenborn (Otsego) capped his first season of collegiate tennis by being named honorable mention All-Heartland Conference. The Beavers returned to the hard courts following a two-year hiatus for both the men and women.
Weisenborn opened the season at #3 singles and moved up to #2 before assuming the #1 slot when an injury to A.J. Haley (Wilmington) slowed Bluffton's top singles player.
Despite playing competitive tennis for the first time ever, he picked up a pair of doubles victories with fellow two-sport athlete Jaden August (Bluffton). Weisenborn, also a member of the Bluffon men's basketball team, was victorious at St. Francis in one of his three matches at #2 singles before moving into the #1 position.
Also recognized following the 2012 season was senior Nate Stroud (Troy/Troy Christian) who was selected to the All-Sportsmanship Team. Stroud and Jon Cunningham (Negley/East Palestine) were the only two returning members from Bluffton's 2009 men's tennis team, the last year that the Beavers fielded a squad.
