Tennessee juniors Mikelis Libietis and Hunter Reese have been named to the ITA collegiate all-star team for 2013.
They will be honored at an awards luncheon Saturday in Flushing, N.Y., which precedes the start of the U.S. Open.
Libietis, who is from Latvia, is one of two players on the team for both singles and doubles. The other was Virginia’s Jarmere Jenkins.
Libietis enjoyed a record-breaking sophomore season in which he became the first Vol to simultaneously hold the No. 1 ranking in both singles and doubles. He went 37-7 in singles and was voted SEC player of the year.
In doubles, Libietis and Reese didn’t join forces until late in the season. Still, they vaulted to top of the rankings by winning 14 matches in the last three months of the season, going 10-0 in SEC play.
Libietis has been named to Latvia’s Davis Cup team for its upcoming tie against Finland.
