Men’s Tennis Bulldogs Land Five on All-KCAC Teams


WICHITA, Kan. ­( — Michael Beltran and Marcus Nardy were named First-Team All-KCAC, while Arthur Nardy and Martin Millos grabbed second-team honors. Daniel Marcano was named honorable mention.

“These guys played a great season in conference and are well deserving of these,” head coach Keiran President said.  “Some of these guys went undefeated in conference play and helped us secure another Conference Title.”

Beltran, a now four-time all-KCAC first teamer, finished the spring season with a 9-3 record, including a 7-1 mark in KCAC play. He was also named the KCAC Player of the Week twice. Beltran’s lone KCAC loss was to KCAC Player of the Year Bryce Ware.

Along with doubles partner, All-KCAC second teamer Martin Millos, Beltran was unbeaten in KCAC play, and dropped just three matches overall and just one to an NAIA opponent (Georgia Gwinnett).

Marcus Nardy, an Eauze, France native, played primarily in the #2 position, and finished 7-1 in KCAC play. He ended the regular season on a three match winning streak, before winning a pair of matches in the KCAC Tournament. Marcus played just four doubles matches in the regular season, losing just one, and was a perfect 2-0 against KCAC opponents.  Marcus is now a two-time all-KCAC first team selection, and was the 2023 KCAC Freshman of the Year.

A native of Vigo, Spain, Millos finished the regular season with a 10-5 record, and a 6-1 mark in KCAC play. Millos was crucial to the Bulldogs ninth KCAC tournament title, winning both of his singles matches in the #4 position.

All-KCAC honors run in the family, as Arthur Nardy picked up a second team nod, following solid season that saw him win 11 matches, including seven KCAC matches. In doubles, Arthur played alongside Celien Botlan, winning ten matches, and six in KCAC play.

Rounding out the all-conference selections, Marcano went 9-2 in the regular season, and was a perfect 7-0 against the KCAC.  Marcano was also 11-3 in doubles, playing with doubles partner Oscar Brouwer. The pair dropped just one match in KCAC play, falling 6-2 to Bethel.

The Bulldogs finished with a perfect KCAC record for the fourth season in a row, and won their ninth-consecutive KCAC Tournament title.

MC is headed to Mobile, Ala., for the NAIA National Tournament where they will square off against No. 15-seeded Lindsey Wilson College. The match is set to begin on May 14 at 9:00 a.m.
