CHARLOTTESVILLE - Virginia senior Jarmere Jenkins (College Park, Ga.) was named the 2013 Intercollegiate Tennis Association National College Player of the Year, the organization announced Wednesday. Jenkins becomes the second Cavalier to win the award, joining Somdev Devvarman who was honored in 2007 and 2008.
Jenkins, who ended the year ranked No. 1 in the ITA singles rankings, was the 2013 NCAA singles runner-up. He posted a 42-6 singles record during his senior season, including winning the 2012 ITA Indoor Intercollegiate Championship title in the fall. He was named NCAA Tournament MVP as the Cavaliers won their first team championship in May. The 2013 ITA/Farnsworth National Senior Player of the Year, he ended his collegiate career by winning the 2013 NCAA Doubles Championship with Mac Styslinger (Birmingham, Ala.).
"It is a tremendous accomplishment to receive this honor," said Jenkins. "The success I had this season is a tribute to all the hard work I have put in during my career. I know I would not have had such a great senior season, both individually and for the team, without the process of this program and all the faith my coaches and teammates had in me during my four years at Virginia."
The ITA College Player of the Year Awards are given to the male and female singles players who have had the most outstanding year in college tennis. Jenkins and Florida's Lauren Embree, the women's ITA National College Player of the Year, will be honored on Saturday, July 13 in Newport, R.I. at a special Awards Luncheon during the Rolex Hall of Fame Enshrinement Weekend.
Previous winners of the ITA College Player of the Year include Tim Mayotte (Stanford, 1981), Mikael Pernfors (Georgia 1985), Bob Bryan (Stanford, 1998) and James Blake (Harvard, 1999), who all went on to reach the top 10 of the ATP rankings after their collegiate careers.
