ST. LOUIS – UMBC juniors Justin Carter (Randallstown, Md.) and Jaan Kononov (Talinn, Estonia) were named to the 2015 Missouri Valley Conference men’s tennis All-Conference team at the conclusion of the league championships.
Carter has now earned All-Conference recognition in all three of his seasons with the Retrievers. Last season, he was the America East Conference co-Player of the Year as he earned first team singles honors and second team doubles accolades. As a freshman in the spring of 2013, he earned three AE Player of the Week honors and earned first team post-season honors in both singles and doubles.
This spring, Carter posted a 9-6 singles record and a mark of 7-3 in doubles. In the MVC quarterfinal match versus Southern Illinois, he posted victories in both doubles and singles and his semifinal singles match was even at a set apiece and on serve in the third set when the match was halted.
