CHARLOTTESVILLE – University of Virginia men’s tennis coach Brian Boland announced Thursday that Treat Huey (Alexandria, Va.) has won the Norton Pritchett Memorial Award for the 2005 season. The award is annually given to the Virginia men’s tennis player based on leadership, cooperative spirit and unselfish service to University of Virginia athletics.
“Treat is extremely deserving of the Norton Pritchett award,” said Boland. “He has worked hard over the course of this past year to develop, and I believe his best tennis is in front of him. He cares deeply about his team and represents the University of Virginia with class. He works hard each and everyday in practice and makes those around him better. Not only will Treat continue to become a better player, I have little doubt that he will be a great leader for our program in years to come.”
In 2005, Huey had a 31-10 overall singles record, including a 24-4 dual match singles record. He had a 26-10 doubles record, playing primarily with fellow first year Somdev Devvarman as the duo went 22-7 and finished the season ranked No. 34 in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association Rankings.
“I am honored to have received the Norton Pritchett award,” said Huey. “I had a good year and I appreciate being chosen as the recipient of this enormous honor.”
In 2005, the Cavaliers had the best season in school history. The team won its second consecutive ACC Championship, reached a school record No. 2 national ranking and reached the quarterfinals of the NCAA Tournament for the first time.
