Rebels Tabbed All-SEC

April 25, 2013

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - Postseason accolades have begun to come in for the No. 7 nationally ranked Ole Miss men's tennis team, with senior Jonas Lutjen and sophomores Nik Scholtz and William Kallberg earning All-SEC honors.  

Scholtz and Lutjen made the first team, while Kallberg was named to the second team.  It's the second All-SEC honor for Scholtz and Lutjen and the first for Kallberg.  The Rebels have had multiple All-SEC selections 20 straight years.  

All three helped lead the Rebels to their 10th SEC Western Division Championship and the program's 17th top four overall league finish in the last 19 years.   The Rebels are in line to host the NCAA first and second rounds.

"The SEC is the strongest conference in the nation, so to be named All-SEC is a tremendous accomplishment," head coach Billy Chadwick said.  "All three were instrumental in our team's success this year."

Scholtz, a native of Caledon, South Africa, is ranked No. 15 in the nation in singles with a 19-8 overall record, 11-6 at No. 1 singles.   

Lutjen is ranked No. 20 in singles with a team-leading 28-10 overall record, 12-6 at No. 2 singles.  The Schessel, Germany native clinched the win over Mississippi State in the regular season meeting, which helped propel the Rebels to the SEC West title.

Together, Scholtz and Lutjen are ranked No. 4 in doubles with a 15-2 record at No. 1.  They finished 6-1 in the SEC.

Kallberg has been ranked as high as No. 40 in the nation this year and owns a 24-11 overall record, 13-7 in dual matches.   The Stockholm, Sweden native clinched wins over No.3 Georgia and No. 17 South Carolina.  The Rebels were the only SEC team to beat Georgia.

The NCAA will announce the field of 64 as well as the 16 host sites for first and second round action for the NCAA Men's Tennis Championships on Tuesday, April 30 at 4p.m. CT in a live stream on NCAA.com. Singles and doubles draws for the individual tournament will be released May 1.
