Alex Domijan (Wesley Chapel, Fla.) is the region's nominee for the ITA Arthur Ashe Leadership and Sportsmanship Award, which recognizes players who have exhibited outstanding sportsmanship and leadership as well as scholastic, extracurricular and tennis achievements. Domijan, the nation's No. 2 ranked singles player, is the third Cavalier to be nominated, joining Devvarman (2007) and Sanam Singh (2011).
