Last week the doubles team of Ben and Amrit were selected to represent the Northeast region at the NCAA Championships in Claremont, CA. This is the second year in a row they will be representing Bates at the national tournament, as they made the semis last year and finished second in the region behind the #1 team from Amherst. The doubles tournament is made up of the top 16 teams in the nation, four from each region. The round of 16 will start this coming Friday at the Claremont McKenna-Harvey Mudd-Scripps Colleges. They had an outstanding year with a 20-6 record, including wins over the #1 team from Amherst, the #1 team from Middlebury, and the #1 team from Johns Hopkins, all who will join Ben and Amrit in Cali.

Stein was also selected to play in the NCAA Singles Championships after barely missing out the last two years. The top 8 from each region will meet in Claremont and the round of 32 will also start on Friday, May 22. He is 17-6 on the year, and expects to get a few more wins to add on to his career total.
