Accomplishments: A four-year letterwinner in two sports and native of Elberon, New Jersey, Dave Weisman enjoyed a tremendous career as a member of both the ice hockey and tennis teams. In hockey, Weisman helped lead Babson to 54 victories over four seasons, including an 18-6-2 mark in 1995-96. One of the team's top play-makers, he amassed 24 goals and 46 assists for 70 points in his career, including a 29-point campaign as a sophomore that placed him second on the squad in scoring. However, Weisman's most impressive feat was his remarkable achievement on the tennis courts, where he led the Beavers to unprecedented success in his four seasons. He guided the team to seventh-place finishes at the New England Championships in each of his first two seasons, and as a sophomore was named All-Conference First Team after leading Babson to the CAC title and a first-place finish among Division III schools at regionals. The following year, he led the Beavers to their first-ever undefeated regular season, as Babson went 11-0, advanced to the East Regional, and placed fourth overall at New Englands - the team's highest finish ever at the event. Ranked second in the nation in singles that season, Weisman won the number-one singles flight of the New England Championships and went on to qualify for the NCAA National Tournament. That set the stage for a legendary senior season which saw him go 19-0 in singles play, repeat as New England champion in number one singles, and qualify for nationals for the second straight year. A Rolex Collegiate All-Star selection that year, Weisman went on to complete his dream season by becoming the first tennis player in Babson College history to win the NCAA Tournament Singles Championship.
