The Ithaca College men’s tennis team made history recently when the doubles team of Taylor Borda ’10 and Josh Rifkin ’11 finished in third place at the Intercollegiate Tennis Association Small College National Championships.
The third-place showing secures All-American status for the duo, a first for Ithaca men’s tennis.
Already the career record holder in doubles victories, Borda now claims 62 career wins.
The pair’s two victories in the nationals tournament also moved Borda into a tie for most career wins in the squad’s history, with 113 singles and doubles wins.
The women’s tennis team is on a roll, too.
In October they won their fifth straight Empire 8 title.
The Bombers, who became the first team to shut out every opponent in the conference tournament, earned the league’s automatic bid to the NCAA playoffs in May.
