Rohde-Moe Earns Arthur Ashe Award Junior Represents ITA Southern Region
May 15, 2013
OXFORD, Miss. - Ole Miss women's tennis junior Caroline Rohde-Moe picked up another honor this season, receiving the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) Arthur Ashe Jr., Sportsmanship and Leadership Award.
The award, which dates back to 1982, goes to players who have exhibited outstanding sportsmanship and leadership as well as scholastic, extracurricular and tennis achievements. Rohde-Moe is among 12 regional finalists in consideration for the national award, which will be announced next week at the NCAA Championships in Champaign, Ill.
"It's a big honor to receive this award," Rohde-Moe said. "To be associated with an award that bears the name of one of the great players in our game means a lot to me."
Rohde-Moe (Bloomenholm, Norway) is a two-time All-SEC honoree on the court and currently ranked No. 45 in the nation in singles and No. 40 in doubles. She helped lead the Rebels to their fifth consecutive NCAA appearance and earned her first ever bid to the NCAA Singles Championships, which begin May 22.
Off the court, Rohde-Moe is an outstanding student. She is an ITA Scholar-Athlete, a member of the SEC Academic Honor Roll and a candidate for the CoSIDA Academic All-District VI Team. Rohde-Moe has helped out with Special Olympics and Reading with the Rebels in addition to being a member of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee.
"This is a great honor for Caroline," head coach Mark Beyers said. "If anyone is deserving of winning a prestigious award like the Arthur Ashe Award, it has to be Caroline. She works as hard as anyone I have ever coached, does an amazing job in the classroom and is very active in the community."
This is the second year in a row for Rohde-Moe to earn an ITA Southern Region Award, as she was named the Player to Watch last year. She became the fifth Ole Miss player and the second in three years to receive the Arthur Ashe Jr., Sportsmanship and Leadership Award.
