Reid Carleton and Chris Mengel

DURHAM, N.C. - Duke's Reid Carleton has been named the ITA Carolina Regional Senior Player of the Year and Chris Mengel has been chosen as the ITA Carolina Regional Rookie of the Year.

Carleton, a senior from Naples, Fla., becomes just the second Duke player to garner Senior Player of the Year honors. Phillip King is the only other Blue Devil to receive the award in 2004. In his final season, Carleton has led the Blue Devils to a 20-9 overall record. He has posted a career-high 33 singles victories to lead the team with 19 over ranked opponents. He also has a 37-5 record in doubles with a 34-5 mark with Henrique Cunha. Carleton has been ranked as high as No. 5 in singles and No. 1 in doubles this year.

Mengel, a freshman from Pittsburgh, Pa. gives Duke two straight ITA Carolina Regional Rookie of the Year selections as Cunha received the award last season. Mengel is the third player in school history to claim the honor, joining Cunha and King (2001). Mengel is just the ninth freshman in school history to win 30 or more singles matches, recording a 30-11 mark on the year. He set a freshman record and tied the school record for most ACC singles victories, going 10-1 in conference play. He has been ranked as high as No. 94 in singles.

The Blue Devils will be back in action tomorrow at 1 p.m. when they face George Washington in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. Duke is hosting the NCAA Regional with Maryland and Michigan playing in the other first round match at 10 a.m.
