The senior/junior pair went 7-5 in the 2017-18 season at the No. 1 and No. 2 positions. This is the first time either athlete has earned a preseason honor in their careers.
"It means a lot, " Dabdab said. "We've been working hard, and hopefully by the end of the season we'll be even better."
The last time an Eagle earned preseason All-Conference was in 2017 when Joao Pedro Oliveira received the preseason First-Team honor in singles.
"This honor is just the result of lots of hours practicing with my partner and friend, Gabriel Dabdab," Bacete said. "I think we've improved so much since we first payed together and I'm so looking forward to see if we can make it to first team this coming season, my last season."
The Eagles will kick off their 2018-19 season on February 3rdat home against the Citadel. For all news and updates check cneagles.com!
