Senior Duo Reflects On Ole Miss Career

For Ole Miss men's tennis seniors, Jonas Lutjen and Adrian Forberg Skogeng, this season has been bittersweet. The Rebels are ranked No. 7 nationally, but it is also their last year to play for Ole Miss.  

Click on the above video link, to hear what both players had to say about their time at Ole Miss and what it has meant to them.

This outstanding duo has been instrumental in the Rebels' claiming an SEC West Championship and three straight NCAA appearances, including last year's Sweet Sixteen. They have helped the Rebels earn the Chancellor's cup every year of their career, as the Ole Miss men's team with the highest cumulative grade point average.  The two helped the Rebels post a 3.40 GPA last year to be one of only four teams to finish the year ranked in the nation's top 15 and earn the ITA All-Academic Team Award.

Forberg Skogeng came to Ole Miss from Oslo, Norway. During his career, he has clinched wins for the Rebels, including the Auburn and Mississippi State matches his freshman year, instrumental in the Rebels claiming the SEC West title.  This year, he clinched consecutive wins over Tennessee and Mississippi State in the National Team Indoor.   

Off the court, Forberg Skogeng boasts a 3.87 GPA.  He is a three-time national ITA Scholar-Athlete, a member of the SEC Academic Honor Roll and a regular on the University Honor Roll.  Forberg Skogeng was a finalist for the H. Boyd McWhorter SEC Scholar-Athlete of the Year Award.

Jonas Lutjen (Left)

One of the top players in singles and doubles, Lutjen (Schessel, Germany) is presently ranked No. 12 in the nation in singles and No. 4 in doubles.  He has played in the top half of the lineup his entire career and clinched many big wins, including the recent 4-2 victory at Mississippi State.  This past fall, Lutjen captured the Southern Intercollegiate singles title as well as defeating five top 20 ranked players to win the ITA All-American backdraw.  Lutjen solidified his rise to the top of college tennis last year when he became the 28th All-American in the history of the program.  In addition, he was named to the All-SEC team.

An excellent student-athlete, Lutjen is a member of the SEC Academic Honor Roll and a regular on the University Honor Roll.
