Scholtz, the SEC Freshman of the Year, earned a 9-16 seed in singles. The South African is currently ranked No. 13 nationally with a 17-7 overall record. Scholtz went 7-4 in the SEC at No. 1 singles and is the second highest ranked freshman in the nation.
Marcel Thiemann earned his third consecutive singles bid. The Lehrte, Germany native has reached the NCAA quarterfinals two years in a row. Thiemann is ranked No. 20 in the country with a 20-6 overall record. He posted a 10-1 record in the SEC at No. 2 singles to earn All-SEC first team honors for the third year.
