Tom Colautti, Diego Vives, Alex Day and Luke Gamble were named to All-Ivy League men's tennis teams, the Ivy League announced Thursday.

Colautti and Vives earned spots on the second-team All-Ivy in singles, and Day and Gamble were second-team All-Ivy in doubles.

Colautti, a junior, earned his third consecutive second-team All-Ivy singles honor. Between the fall and spring, Colautti had a 19-13 singles record, going 11-9 in spring duals and 3-3 in the Ivy League, playing most often at second singles. He was included on the ITA's fall national rankings at No. 118.

Vives, a sophomore, earned his first All-Ivy honor. Going 19-18 overall, Vives was 11-13 in duals and 2-4 in Ivy play in his first year as Princeton's No. 1 singles player, where he played 21 of his 24 contests in the spring. In that role, he faced nine nationally-ranked singles players in the spring, getting a win over No. 59 Leo Stakhovsky from Penn State.

Day, a junior, and Gamble, a sophomore, also earned their first All-Ivy honors. Though players are on the All-Ivy doubles teams as individuals and not as pairs, Day and Gamble broke into the ITA natioanl rankings April 12 at No. 86, rose to No. 76 the following week and were at No. 70 in the most recent ranking released April 26. As a pair, Day and Gamble had the most matches together of any Princeton combination in 2015-16, going 20-13 overall, 13-7 in dual matches, all at the No. 1 position, and 4-2 in Ivy play. They went 3-0 in completed matches as a pair against nationally-ranked opponents, defeating Auburn's 52nd-ranked Marko Krickovic and Edward Nguyen, Harvard's 44th-ranked Nicky Hu and Brian Yeung, and Cornell's 66th-ranked Colin Sinclair and David Volfson.

Overall, Day went 24-16 in doubles, 15-7 in duals and 4-2 in Ivy play and Gamble went 25-14 between the fall and the spring, 15-7 in duals and 4-2 in the Ivy, all with Day in league play.

Princeton faced 13 ITA-ranked teams over the course of the spring and remained in the ITA national top 75 the entire season, reaching a peak of No. 34 in early April.
