Stefan Johnson, sophomore, Northampton

Won Western Massachusetts individual championship without losing a set. ... Only dropped 10 games across five matches in the tournament. ... Went 10-0 at No. 1 singles in team matches. ... Led Northampton to a postseason appearance.

“He was often dominant, but when matches got tight, he did what top players do – he found another gear, he hung tough, or he got the key point to pull out the win. Two, he was the kind of champion who showed sportsmanship whether he won big or small; who played hurt; who traveled with the team when too hurt to play; who supported teammates up and down the ladder. As a coach, I’d have Stefan in my lineup whether he was 10-0 or 0-10 – but we’ll take 10-0.” — Northampton coach Michael Musprat.
