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.
