BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Junior Julia Jones has been a huge part of the Ole Miss women’s tennis team’s success this year, and Wednesday, she was recognized for her efforts, earning All-SEC Second Team honors.

Jones (St. Petersburg, Fla.) owns a team-leading 26-10 overall record, 15-6 in dual matches and 8-5 in the SEC.  She posted a 4-2 record at No. 2 singles, 11-4 at No. 3 singles.  Jones also went 15-5 in doubles with freshman Zalina Khairudinova, 7-3 in the SEC.  

This marks the second time for Jones to be recognized by the league office, as she was named to the All-Freshman team in 2012.

“Julia is very deserving of this honor,” head coach Mark Beyers said.  “This league is very difficult, and she has had a great year leading us in singles and doubles. To be among the top players in a conference with five teams ranked in the top 10 currently, is a tremendous accomplishment.”

The Rebels have had at least one member of the squad named to the All-SEC team every year of Coach Beyers’ career (13 years).

Alabama’s Jenny Mainz was named SEC Coach of the Year for the third time in the last four years. The Crimson Tide are currently 22-4 overall and ended the conference season with a 12-1 record and the regular season title.  

Georgia’s Lauren Herring was named Player of the Year while Alabama’s Erin Routliffe and Vanderbilt’s Sydney Campbell were named Co-Freshman of the Year. Scholar-Athlete of the Year was awarded to Alabama’s Mary Anne Daines.  

The NCAA Selections will be announced Tuesday, April 29 at 4:30 p.m. CT on NCAA.com.
