Lutjen Earns ITA Southern Region Honor Named Senior Of The Year
May 15, 2013
OXFORD, Miss. – Ole Miss men’s tennis player Jonas Lutjen picked up another honor this week, as he was named the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) Southern Region Senior of the Year.
Lutjen is one of 12 regional finalists who will now be in consideration for the ITA National Senior of the Year Award, which will be announced next week during the NCAA Championships.
The native of Schessel, Germany is currently ranked No. 20 in the nation in singles and No. 3 in doubles. Lutjen helped lead the Rebels to their 10th SEC Western Division Championship and the team’s 20th consecutive NCAA appearance. A two-time All-American and All-SEC honoree, Lutjen owns a 30-10 overall record in singles and 17-6 in doubles with Nik Scholtz.
“We are proud of Jonas for receiving this award,” head coach Billy Chadwick said. Jonas has improved each year of his career to become one of the top players in the nation. He is very deserving of this award, and hopefully he can close out his career with a strong showing at the NCAA Championships in singles and doubles.”
Lutjen became the second Rebel to earn the ITA Region Senior of the Year Award, joining former All-American Alex Hartman, who received the honor in 2003.
