BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - Ole Miss junior women's tennis player Caroline Rohde-Moe is one of those individuals who excel on and off the court, and Wednesday, she picked up another honor, earning All-SEC Second Team recognition as the league office announced the yearly awards.
The Blommenholm, Norway native earned All-SEC honors for the second year in a row. Rohde-Moe is currently ranked No. 43 in the nation in singles and is also nationally ranked in doubles with freshman Marija Milutinovic. Playing No. 1 singles for the first year in her career, Rohde-Moe owns a 26-18 overall record and came up big last week to clinch the Rebels' win over South Carolina in the first round of the SEC Championship.
"This is a fantastic honor for Caroline," head coach Mark Beyers said. "Caroline is one of the hardest working players I have ever been around. This league is extremely tough, so to be selected on the All-SEC Team is a great accomplishment."
