Dartmouth, Mass. -- UMass Dartmouth senior Jenna Lahaie and junior Jaime Fastino each earned spots on the 2018 Little East Conference Women’s Tennis All-Conference team that was announced earlier today in a vote of the league’s coaches.
Lahaie, a native of Lakeville, Mass. and a graduate of Apponequet Regional High School, will graduate as one of the most decorated players in school history after earning her fourth straight first-team all-conference singles accolade, as she posted an overall mark of 14-2 at the number one spot that included a 7-2 Little East slate. Jenna closed out her career with a 43-19 (.694) singles record and was tabbed as the league’s Rookie of the Year following her freshman campaign in 2015.
Fastino, a native of Rehoboth, Mass. and a graduate of Dighton-Rehoboth High School, earned second-team all-Little East singles honors for the second time in three seasons, as she recorded a 9-4 mark (6-3 in league action) at the number two position in the lineup. Jaime has notched an overall record of 31-10 (.756) in singles play over her career, including a pair of 11-3 slates in both her freshman and sophomore seasons.
Lahaie and Fastino teamed up to earn second-team all-conference accolades in doubles play for a second straight year, as the duo combined to win 14 of their 16 overall matches (seven in LEC play) at the number one spot in the Corsair lineup this fall. The doubles honor was also the fourth of Lahaie’s career, as she claimed a spot on the first team as a sophomore in 2016 in addition second team recognition during her freshman campaign.
UMass Dartmouth notched an overall mark of 11-5 (6-3 in conference play) under the guidance of sixth year Head Coach Doug Chapman in 2018, as the Corsairs advanced to the Little East semifinals before falling to eventual tournament champion Rhode Island College. The post-season berth marked the program’s 11th straight appearance in the league championships.
