WILLIAMSBURG, Va. - For the third time this season, William and Mary men’s tennis senior Anton Andersson and sophomore Aaron Chaffee were selected as the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) Doubles Team of the Week, the league office announced on Tuesday. The Green and Gold pair went a perfect 2-0 at the No. 1 spot in dual-match play against Richmond and Old Dominion, including a win over a nationally-ranked opponent.

Andersson and Chaffee received the distinction on March 13 and March 26 as well. In total, the Tribe has taken home six CAA weekly honors this season. Senior Adrian Vodislav (April 8) and junior Ben Hoogland (March 6) were named CAA Singles Players of the Week earlier this season. Along with Chaffee and Andersson’s three doubles honors, junior John Banks and freshman Scott Huang took home the doubles team of the week award as well on Feb. 20. Andersson and Chaffee are the first Tribe doubles team to win the distinction on three occasions in a season since Alex Cojanu and Dominic Pagon in 2008.

Against Richmond, Andersson and Chaffee rallied from a 5-2 deficit, winning seven of the final nine games to clinch the doubles point for W&M with a 9-7 win over Ethan Dunbar and Sebastien Fauchet. The Tribe duo recorded a convincing 8-2 triumph over 88th-ranked Carlos Lopez Villa and Can Cetinel of Old Dominion on April 13 to push its win streak to six matches. Andersson and Chaffee improved to 10-7 on the year with nine wins coming at the No. 1 post.

The Tribe will be the No. 2 seed in the 2013 CAA Tennis Championship at the Millie West Tennis Facility, April 19-21, in Williamsburg. The Green and Gold received an opening round bye and will meet the winner of No. 3 James Madison and No. 6 Hofstra in the semifinals on Saturday, April 20, at 2 p.m. The CAA Championship match is slated for Sunday, April 21, at 2 p.m. as well.
