Three Earn All-Conference Honors for Men's Tennis
Tverijonas, Fletcher and Reynolds named to First Team
NEWPORT NEWS, Va. -Three Colonials have landed Atlantic 10 men's tennis All-Conference honors for the 2017 season, the league announced on Monday. Senior Julius Tverijonas and juniors Chris Fletcher and Chris Reynolds all garnered First Team honors, while Tverijonas also received All-Academic distinction.
"Such deserving awards for Reynolds, Fletcher and Julius," said first-year head coach David Macpherson. They all had tremendous seasons on the court, leading our team and excelling in their studies. Julius has been the greatest example of a leader on and off the court I could ever ask for as a coach. Reynolds and Fletcher will now carry that torch into next season proudly."
Tverijonas earns postseason recognition for the fourth-consecutive year after leading the Colonials with an overall 27-9 singles record, including a 15-5 solo mark at the No. 1 position in dual match play. The Siauliai, Lithuania, native won nine of his last 10 singles decisions and posted a 4-1 record against A-10 opponents. On the doubles court, Tverijonas owned a 22-8 overall record with a 15-5 spring mark, again playing at the top position. The senior lands on the All-Academic Team for the third time, owning a 3.85 GPA as a finance major.
Fletcher tallied a stellar spring en route to his third postseason honor, with victories against two nationally ranked opponents in singles play. The Windsor, Ontario, Canada, product recorded an overall 19-9 singles mark with a 15-5 spring match record competing at the Nos. 2-3 spots. In doubles play, Fletcher posted an overall 20-6 record with a 14-4 spring mark, primarily in top-flight action.
Reynolds lands All-Conference distinction for the second time in his career after overcoming an injury in the fall to lead the team in spring singles victories with a 16-8 record. Splitting time between the Nos. 2-3 positions, the Guildford, Surrey, England, native went a perfect 5-0 against conference foes and won the last 10 decisions of the season. Reynolds posted an overall 11-12 doubles mark this year.
