BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Ole Miss men’s tennis player Nik Scholtz was named the Southeastern Conference Freshman of the Year, while Marcel Thiemann and Jonas Lutjen joined him on the All-SEC team. The announcements were made this morning.
Scholtz becomes the first player in the history of the program to earn SEC Freshman of the Year honors. The Caledon, South Africa native, also named to the All-SEC first team and the All-Freshman Team, posted a 7-4 record in the SEC at No. 1 singles and teamed with Lutjen for a 9-2 league record in doubles. Scholtz is presently ranked No. 13 in the nation in singles and doubles is the second highest ranked freshman in the country. He was recently named to the SEC All-Tournament Team after helping lead the Rebels to the semifinals for the 15th time. (April 26, 2012, Page 6)

The Rebels did just that, shutting out the Tigers 4-0 Tuesday at the Palmer/Salloum Tennis Center. (more…) (March 2, 2011, Page 7)
