NAIA awards for Carroll, Foelz

FPU's inaugural men's tennis team continues to make headlines.

Matt Carroll was named to the NAIA All-America First Team while teammate Marco Foelz was named to the NAIA All-America Scholar Athlete Team.

Carroll, a sophomore from Melbourne, Australia, played both No. 1 singles and doubles for the Sunbirds. His doubles partner, from Hamburg, Germany, split most of the season between the No 4 and No.5 slots.

The Sunbirds completed their first season of competition with a 15-10 record that included a 10-2 mark in the Golden State Athletic Conference.

FPU was also runner-up in the Region 2 championship and advanced to the NAIA National Championship Tournament as the No. 5 seed. They reached the Elite Eight before dropping a 5-1 decision to 4th-seeded Freed-Hardeman of Tennessee.
