CHARLOTTESVILLE - Three Virginia tennis players were honored Tuesday as the Atlantic Coast Conference announced the 2012-13 All-ACC Academic Teams. Sophomore Mitchell Frank (Annandale, Va.) and first-year Mac Styslinger (Birmingham, Ala.) were named to the men's team, while senior Erin Vierra (Norwell, Mass.) was selected to the women's team.
To be eligible for consideration for the All-ACC Academic Team, a student-athlete must have earned a 3.0 grade point average for the previous semester and maintained a 3.0 cumulative average during her academic career.
Frank was honored for the second consecutive year. An All-ACC selection in 2013, he won the final match on the courts in Virginia's 4-3 victory over UCLA in the NCAA Final, giving the Cavaliers their first NCAA Championship. He participated in both the NCAA Singles and Doubles Tournaments, finishing the year ranked No. 29 nationally in singles and No. 18 nationally in doubles.
Styslinger was selected after a strong freshman season that was capped by winning the NCAA Doubles Championship with Jarmere Jenkins (College Park, Ga.). The ITA Atlantic Region Rookie of the Year, he finished the season ranked No. 35 nationally in singles and No. 2 nationally in doubles.
Vierra was named to the All-ACC Academic Team for the first time in her career. She was selected to the NCAA Doubles Tournament with Maci Epstein (Winter Park, Fla.), but the pair had to withdraw due to Epstein's injury. The duo ended the season ranked No. 25 nationally in doubles. In singles, Vierra posted a 27-12 record, including a 15-8 dual match record.
Blount Eager to Assume Larger RoleFootball3/21/18The job will not be handed to rising sophomore Joey Blount. He'll have to earn it. This is head coach Bronco Mendenhall's program, after all. But after spending the 2017 season as free safety Quin Blanding's understudy, Blount is the leading candidate to take over in the secondary for the University of Virginia's all-time leading tackler.'Hoos Exit With Heads Held HighWomen's Basketball3/19/18In its first trip to the NCAA tourney since 2010, 10th-seeded Virginia went 1-1 in Columbia, S.C., defeating seventh-seeded Cal and losing to second-seeded South Carolina.'Hoos Look To Take Next Step in NCAA TourneyWomen's Basketball3/18/18A win Sunday night over second-seeded South Carolina would send 10th-seeded Virginia to the NCAA tournament's Sweet Sixteen for the first time since 2000.
