UVA's Scott Lebovitz Named GTE Academic All-America
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- University of Virginia tennis player Scott Lebovitz (Marietta, Ga.) is a second-team member of the 1997 GTE Academic All-America University Division Men's Spring At-Large Team. Lebovitz, who received his bachelor's degree from Virginia's McIntire School of Commerce last 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 and earned All-Atlantic Coast Conference honors. 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.
Virginia has had five student-athletes earn Academic All-America honors during the 1996-97 academic year. In addition to Lebovitz, UVa football tailback Tiki Barber and soccer midfielder Mike Fisher are first-team Academic All-America selections, and soccer defender/midfielder Andriy Shapowal and field hockey midfielder/back Heather Hale are second-team selections.
