CLEVELAND, Ohio - The Mid-American Conference announced it's men's tennis Academic All-MAC team today, with three members of the Western Michigan men's tennis team - Andrew Cahn, Ruben Greiner, and Nadin Indre - earning spots on the list.  In addition, sophomores Jimmy Beckwith and Michael Treis were named Academic All-MAC Honorable Mentions.

Cahn, who maintains a GPA of 3.64 as a Pre-Business major, went 18-19 in singles in 2013-14, including an 11-11 mark in dual match singles.  He played as high as No. 2 in the singles line-up, recording a 2-2 mark there, but his biggest strides were made in doubles play; he went a team-best 20-13 in doubles matches over the course of the season, including a 14-6 mark in dual match doubles.  Cahn was a perfect 4-0 in MAC doubles in 2014, earning three wins with Stephen Payne and another while teamed with Treis.

Indre wrapped his career at WMU with his third straight First Team All-MAC honor and one of the best seasons of his three-year career, notching numbers that place him in elite company among Broncos in team history.  A senior that maintained a 3.54 GPA and a degree in Computer Information Systems, he recorded a team-best 27-14 record in singles, including a 17-6 mark in dual match singles at the No. 1 position.  His career record of 77-32 in singles play gives him a .706 singles winning percentage, the third-highest for a singles play with at least 75 wins under head coach Dave Morin.  Indre entered the 2013-14 season with a #124 rank in ITA singles and maintained a high level of play throughout the year, going 4-0 against Big Ten opponents and anchoring the WMU line-up.

Greiner, a sophomore with a 3.83 GPA in Business Marketing, was a key contributor in doubles play for the Broncos this season, tying for third on the team with a 16-15 mark in doubles play that included a 12-7 mark in dual match doubles.  A versatile doubles partner, Greiner played nearly equally at all three dual match doubles positions, going 3-1 at No. 1, 2-2 at No. 2, and 7-4 at No. 3.  He tied his freshman campaign with 16 wins in singles play, including a 7-11 mark at the No. 2 spot in the line-up and a win at No. 1 early in the season.
