Senior Marcel Thiemann will be blogging throughout the 2012 season on all things Rebel tennis. Marcel is a two-time All-American and three-time All-SEC first team honoree from Lehrte, Germany.
Hey Rebel fans,
The regular season is over. Unfortunately, we were not able to capture the SEC West Championship. The SEC has proven again to be one of the toughest leagues in the nation with eight teams in the Top 25 and we are right in it being ranked No.13.
Nevertheless, we made the Semifinals of the SEC Tournament beating No. 10 Florida. With that victory, we were able to reach our goal to host the first and second rounds of this year’s NCAA Championship.
We were also well represented on the All-SEC teams with Nik Scholtz named SEC Freshman of the Year, All-SEC First Team and named to the All-Tournament Team. Also, I was named to the All-SEC First Team and Jonas was named to the All-SEC Second Team. This shows that the potential is there, and it’s time to show it.
We had about two and a half weeks off since the SEC Tournament and we used that time to work on different things to get in the best shape possible. With having our finals behind us, the team can finally focus on playing the first round against Binghamton on Saturday.
It’s the first time for me and Christoph to host a Regional and it’s the first time for the Rebels since 2008. Christoph and I are very excited about having the opportunity to play at home again.
We want to see a big crowd out there supporting us. It really gives us a lift. So come out to the Palmer/Salloum Tennis Center and help us advance to the NCAA Sweet Sixteen!
