  • The Intercollegiate Tennis Association released its NAIA National and Regional Awards this week and McPherson College’s Rafael Bulnes and Sean De Young were honored along with head coach Jeff Benito.
    In his second year at the helm of the McPherson College Bulldog Tennis program, Benito guided his men’s tennis team to a top 25 ranking in the NAIA all year long and just narrowly missed qualifying for the NAIA National Tournament.  
    Benito was recognized by the ITA Central Region Committee with the ITA Central Region Coach of the Year honors for Men’s Tennis. Earlier this year, Benito was named the KCAC Tennis Coach of the Year.
    Junior Sean De Young received the Arthur Ashe Sportsmanship and Leadership Award for the Central Region.
    The ITA/Arthur Ashe Leadership and Sportsmanship Award recognizes outstanding individuals in all divisions at the regional and national level.
    Sophomore Rafael Bulnes was recognized by the Central Region as with its Player to Watch.  Doubly, Bulnes was selected as the National Award Winner for the ITA’s Player to Watch Award.
