Charlton, Coste Earn Pac-12 Accolades
EUGENE, Ore. – On the heels of their standout seasons, Joshua Charlton and Emmanuel Coste earned second-team honors when Pac-12 postseason accolades were announced Thursday. The UO pair helped the Ducks advance to the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
Charlton and Coste are the third and fourth Ducks to earn second-team honors since the conference transitioned to the Pac-12 following the 2010-11 season. That list also features Robin Cambier (2014) and Daan Maasland (2015, '16).
Charlton finished his 2021 campaign with a 13-6 record in singles play including a 3-3 mark against Pac-12 opponents, playing primarily at the No. 2 spot. He posted his highest-ranked win of the season with a three-set win over No. 36 Arthur Fery in the Ducks' 4-2 victory over Stanford. In the first round of the NCAA Tournament, Charlton beat No. 66 Patrick Kaukovalta to help Oregon beat Alabama, 4-3.
The UO standout also tallied a 16-3 record in doubles play this past season. The UO pair of Charlton and Quinn Vandecasteele tallied a 10-3 record with two top-25 victories including a triumph over the then-No. 2 ranked team of Daniel Cukierman and Riley Smith of USC.
Coste closed out his UO career with a 12-7 record during his senior season. Spending time at the No. 1 and 2 spots in the lineup, he had four wins over top-100 opponents including a three-set triumph over No. 50 Jonas Zivert of Arizona during the opening weekend of league play. Coste clinched a pair of 4-3 wins for the Ducks against Utah and Alabama in the final two weeks of the season.
Both players also earned Pac-12 Player of the Week honors during the season.
