CHARLOTTESVILLE – Five members of the NCAA Champion Virginia men’s tennis team were named to the 2015 All-ACC Men’s Tennis Team, announced by the conference on Wednesday. J.C. Aragone (Yorba Linda, Calif.), Luca Corinteli (Alexandria, Va.), Mitchell Frank (Annandale, Va.), Thai-Son Kwiatkowski (Charlotte, N.C.) and Mac Styslinger (Birmingham, Ala.) were honored, as the Cavaliers led all schools with five selections.
Frank was named to the team for the fourth time in his career, becoming the first Cavalier to accomplish the feat. The ITA Rafael Osuna Sportsmanship Award winner concluded his senior season ranked No. 17 nationally in singles to earn All-America honors for the third time. The first-team All-ACC selection was the NCAA Tournament Most Outstanding Player after clinching Virginia’s 4-1 victory over top-ranked Oklahoma in the NCAA final.
Styslinger was honored for the second consecutive season. Ranked as high as No. 47 nationally in singles during the year, the junior earned All-NCAA Tournament Team honors at No. 2 doubles and ended the season ranked No. 40 nationally in doubles.
Kwiatkowski is a repeat selection after earning All-America honors during his sophomore season. The NCAA Singles Championship semifinalist ended the year ranked No. 12 nationally and tied the Virginia record with 44 singles wins during the season.
A pair of sophomores, Aragone and Corinteli, received their first All-ACC Academic Team selection. Aragone was the ACC Tournament MVP as Virginia captured its ninth consecutive conference title and its 11th in the past 12 years. Corinteli was named an ITA Doubles All-American after finishing the year ranked No. 5 nationally.
To be eligible for consideration, a student-athlete must have earned a 3.00 grade point average for the previous semester and maintained a 3.00 cumulative grade point average during her academic career.
