CHARLOTTESVILLE – The Virginia men’s tennis team had four players named All-Americans on Thursday by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA). Alex Domijan (Wesley Chapel, Fla.), Mitchell Frank (Annandale, Va.) and Jarmere Jenkins (College Park, Ga.) were named singles All-Americans, while Jenkins and Drew Courtney (Clifton, Va.) were named doubles All-Americans.

The four individuals and five total honors are both school records for a season. Frank and Jenkins each earned All-America status for the first time in their career, making them the 13th and 14th All-Americans in Virginia history.

Domijan earned All-America honors in singles for the second time in his career. The sophomore ended the season with a 27-5 record and a No. 18 national ranking after reaching the quarterfinals of the NCAA Singles Championship.

Frank, the 2012 ITA National Freshman of the Year, was named an All-American in his first collegiate season. He ended the year ranked No. 2 nationally in singles after posting a 38-2 record. He won both of the fall’s major singles titles, the ITA All-American Championship and the ITA National Indoor Championship, and reached the quarterfinals of the NCAA Singles Championship.

Jenkins earned his first All-American honors after posting a 30-6 singles record. The 2012 ACC Player of the Year finished the season ranked No. 6 nationally in singles.

Jenkins and Courtney earned doubles All-America status after a 19-8 season that saw them end the year ranked No. 6 nationally. While it was the first doubles All-America accolade for Jenkins, it was the third consecutive year Courtney was named a doubles All-American. He joins Michael Shabaz, who he teamed with to win the 2010 NCAA Doubles Championship, as the only Cavaliers to be three-time doubles All-Americans.

To earn All-America status in singles a player must be a top 16 seed in the NCAA Singles Championship, reach the round of 16 of the NCAA Singles Championship, or be ranked in the top 20 of the final ITA rankings. To earn All-America status in doubles, a team must be a top eight seed in the NCAA Doubles Championship, reach the quarterfinals of the NCAA Doubles Championship, or be ranked in the top 10 of the final ITA rankings.
