OXFORD, Miss. – The Ole Miss men’s tennis team looks to continue their strong play this season as they travel to Tulsa, Okla., this weekend for the Saint Francis Health Systems All-American Championships, hosted by the University of Tulsa.

The first of three collegiate majors, the ITA All-American Championships features more than 300 of the nation’s best collegiate tennis players.    

Prequalifying singles will begin Saturday, Sept. 28 at the Michael D. Case Tennis Center.  Qualifying begins Sept. 30 and the main draw will begin on Oct. 3.  

The Rebels will have five players competing in the elite field, starting Saturday with sophomores Stefan Lindmark and Zach Wilder and freshman Vinod Gowda.

Both Lindmark and Wilder reached the third round of the SEC Fall Classic last weekend in Nashville.

Junior William Kallberg will start in the qualifying singles beginning next Monday.  Ranked No. 65 in the nation, Kallberg advanced to the quarterfinals at last weekend’s SEC Fall Classic.

All four will be seeking to join teammate, junior Nik Scholtz, in the main draw.  The two-time All-American will make his season debut for the Rebels at the All-American after competing for his country (South Africa) in Davis Cup earlier this month.  Scholtz is ranked No. 7 in the nation.

“This is one of the premier individual tournaments of the year, and we are looking forward to it,” head coach Billy Chadwick said.  “We had a good start to the fall season last weekend, and the guys have been working hard to prepare for the first big event of the collegiate year.  Hopefully we can have a few more players join Nik in the main draw.”

Johan Backstrom is still recovering from an ankle injury and is expected to be back in action in a couple of weeks, while Joe Rogers is working his way back from knee problems and will also not compete at the All-American.

Ole Miss has had success at the All-American, winning both a singles title and a doubles title.  Catalin Gard claimed the singles title in 2004 and Jonas Berg and Bram ten Berge took home the doubles title in 2008.
