Scott Lebovitz Named to GTE Academic All-District Team

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- University of Virginia tennis player Scott Lebovitz (Marietta, Ga.) is a first-team member of the 1997 GTE Men's University Division Academic All-District III Spring At-Large Team. As a first-team member of the district team, Lebovitz will now be considered for GTE Academic All-America honors. District III covers the states of Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia.

Lebovitz, who received his bachelor's degree from Virginia's McIntire School of Commerce earlier this month, was the team captain and played number one singles for the Cavaliers during the 1996-97 season. He compiled an overall record of 23-16, earned All-Atlantic Coast Conference honors and participated in the NCAA Tournament. Lebovitz was ranked as high as 54th in the nation this spring, the highest ranking ever for a UVa men's tennis player. He had six wins over ranked opponents and will compete for the United States in the Maccabiah Games in Israel this summer.

Lebovitz is a member of the Beta Gamma Sigma National Honor Society and received the Wall Street Journal Student Achievement Award given annually to an outstanding commerce school student for overall academic excellence. He is also a member of the Raven Society for his academic work and service to the University of Virginia, and he received the Norton Pritchett Award which is presented annually to a UVa men's tennis player for exemplary leadership, spirit and service.
