2011-12 Season - DeSimone, Palmer named All-CCIW

Senior Adam DeSimone (L) and freshman Lawrence Palmer (R) have been named to the 2012 College Conference of Illinois & Wisconsin men's tennis all-conference team. DeSimone was a first team selection and Palmer was named to the second team.

NAPERVILLE, Ill.- Senior Adam DeSimone (Bettendorf HS, Bettendorf, Iowa) and freshman Lawrence Palmer (Schiller International HS, El Prat De Llobregat, Spain) have been named to this year's College Conference of Illinois & Wisconsin all-conference men's tennis team. DeSimone was selected to the first team, while Palmer was a second team pick.

DeSimone, the Vikings' number one singles player for three years and a number one doubles player for four, finished his career second on Augustana's all-time wins list with 136, just three off the school record. This year, he went 15-16 in singles play and teamed with sophomore Andy Wall (Notre Dame Academy, De Pere, Wis.) to go 16-13 in doubles. With his inclusion on this year's All-CCIW team, DeSimone becomes a four-time honoree. He was a second team selection each of the last three years.

Palmer posted a 9-11 record this year playing at number two singles for the Vikings. He went 12-11 in doubles, including a 12-10 mark when teamed with his brother Will Palmer (Schiller International HS, Great Britain) at number two.
