Lebovitz, Schofield Named All-ACC
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- University of Virginia men's tennis players Scott Lebovitz and Bear Schofield were named to the 12-member 1997 All-Atlantic Coast Conference squad as selected by a vote of the league's nine head coaches.
Lebovitz, a senior from Marietta, Ga., has played #1 for the Cavaliers this spring and compiled a 23-16 overall record. This is the first time he has been named All-ACC. Lebovitz is ranked 54th in the current Rolex rankings, the highest rank ever for a Virginia men's tennis player.
Schofield, a junior from McLean, Va., is a holdover from last season's All-ACC squad and becomes the first player in school history named All-ACC more than once. Schofield plays #2 for the Cavaliers and is 20-12 this season. Schofield and Hyon Yoo were runner-up in the ACC this season at #2 doubles.
Joining Lebovitz and Schofield on the All-ACC team are: Clemson's Bruce Li and Mitch Sprengelmeyer; Alberto Brause and Doug Root of Duke; Ben Cassaigne and B.J. Traub of Georgia Tech; North Carolina's Paul Harsanyi, Tripp Phillips and Rob Tedesco; and Roberto Bracone of N.C. State.
Sprengelmeyer was voted the ACC Player of the Year, while Root was named the ACC Rookie of the Year. Chuck Kreise of Clemson was named the ACC Coach of the Year.
