ATHENS, Ga. – Several members of the Ole Miss men’s tennis team will return to action Wednesday as the NCAA Individual Championships get underway at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex.  

Freshman Nik Scholtz, senior Marcel Thiemann and junior Jonas Lutjen are in the 64-player singles draw.  Scholtz and Lutjen and Marcel and his brother, Chris Thiemann, are in the 32-team doubles field.

Scholtz, the SEC Freshman of the Year and ITA Southern Region Rookie of the Year, is seeded 9-16 in singles and will face Alexis Klegou of Texas A&M in the first round 9 a.m. CT.   Scholtz (18-8) is the second Rebel freshman in four years to compete in the NCAA Championships.  In 2009, Devin Britton became the youngest NCAA Singles Champion in the history of men’s tennis.

Marcel, a two-time NCAA Singles Quarterfinalist, will start his run at 11 a.m. CT against Francis Alcantara of Fresno State.   Thiemann (21-7) became the third player in the history of the program to earn All-SEC first team honors three years.  

Lutjen, making his first NCAA individual appearance, will face Greg Andrews of Notre Dame at 9 a.m. CT.  Lutjen owns a 23-12 overall record.

Doubles play begins Thursday.   Scholtz and Lutjen, ranked No. 13 in the nation, will face Andre Dome and Matt Fawcett of Cal-Poly in the first round, while the 17th-ranked Thiemann’s will meet Kyle Parker and Mickael Trintignac from the College of Charleston.
