Men's Tennis Duo Earns National Ranking



June 1, 2012

NEW ORLEANS - Tulane men's tennis duo Idan Mark and Joe Young have earned their way into the Intercollegiate Tennis Association's (ITA) national doubles rankings and sit 90th in the country.

Mark and Young posted a 21-9 overall record playing together in 2011-12, including a 14-6 dual match record in the spring. The duo also strung together a run of 10 straight wins during the spring season and won 11 of their last 12 matches, including an upset of the then-sixth ranked pair of Clifford Marsland and Ashley Watling of Tulsa in the final regular season match.

"It's great to see these guys get recognized for the work they've done this year," Tulane head coach Mark Booras said. "They had a great streak at the end of the year and beat, at that time, the six team in the country. It really shows how much they've developed since they started playing together last year."

The pair helped guide Tulane to its first national team ranking since 2005 and the program's first winning record since the same year. The Green Wave completed the 2012 season with a 12-11 mark.
