Alabama Tennis’ Luigi D’Agord and Joseph Jung have been named Second Team All-Southeastern Conference as voted on by the coaches.
D’Agord posted a 26-18 record this season with two wins over nationally ranked opponents this spring. D’Agord has twice been named SEC Athlete of the Week this season and on Jan. 31 he became the first player in SEC history to be named SEC Athlete of the Week in his first week of eligibility for the award. D’Agord’s 26 wins this season rank eighth all-time on Alabama’s single-season wins list.
Jung finished the regular season on an eight-match winning streak to up his record to 22-12 overall, 7-4 in the SEC. On April 13 he became just the third player in Alabama history to record back-to-back 20-win seasons. He leads the team with three wins this spring over nationally ranked opponents.
