GREENSBORO, N.C. - Three members of the Virginia Tech men's tennis team were selected to the 2008 All-Atlantic Coast Conference Academic Men's Tennis Team as announced today by Commissioner John D. Swofford.
Pedro Graber (So., Santiago, Chile), Sebastien Jacques (Fr., Magog, Quebec, Canada) and Ignaci Roca (Sr., San Jose, Costa Rica) were all named to the elite academic squad. Graber was named to the team for the second consecutive year.
On the court, Jacques led the Hokies with a 29-10 record including a 8-3worksheet in ACC contest while Graber posted 12 singles victories. Roca battled through injuries during his senior season and appeared in only four singles matches.
