Hartford, Conn., July 23, 2012 –Trinity College men's tennis senior tri-captain Anson McCook (Miami, Fla.) was named to the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) Division III All-American Team.  McCook also graced the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) All-Conference Second Team as a singles player, and joined first-year partner Ned Mandel (Bethesda, Md.) on the All-NESCAC Second Team in doubles. 

Trinity, coached by Paul Assaiante (16th Season), were 9-8 overall and 5-4 in the NESCAC, closing the year with a 5-0 loss to Bowdoin in the NESCAC Championship First Round in Bennington, Vt.  The Bantams finished ranked No. 7 in the ITA Division III Northeast Regional Poll and No. 24 in the ITA Division III National Poll. 

McCook, a two-time All-American and All-NESCAC First Teamer in singles, a three-time All-NESCAC Second Team selection for doubles, and a 2010 All-American in doubles, finished the season with a 15-6 record in 2011-12, including a 10-3 record in dual matches at No. 1 singles.  McCook, who was 10-7 in doubles with Mandel and 12-9 with all partners this season, finished ranked No. 14 nationally among singles players, while Mandel/McCook was ranked No. 8 in the Northeast in doubles.  Also a two-time NESCAC All-Academic selection, McCook represented Trinity men's tennis on the 2009-10 NESCAC All-Sportsmanship Team.  In his fine career, McCook posted a 57-22 singles record (2nd all-time at Trinity in wins) and a 58-33 doubles mark with several partners.   A singles and doubles State Champion at Ransom Everglades High School, McCook graduated from Trinity in May with a degree in engineering at Trinity.  He is the son of Jacqueline and Peter McCook.
