CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. –  Virginia men’s tennis senior Chris Rodesch (Angelsburg, Luxembourg) has been named the 2024 ACC Men’s Tennis Scholar-Athlete of the Year in honors announced Tuesday (June 18) by the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Måns Dahlberg, Dylan Dietrich, Edoardo Graziani, James Hopper, Alexander Kiefer, Iñaki Montes and Jeffrey von der Schulenburg joined Rodesch on the All-ACC Academic team.

Rodesch, a foreign affairs major, repeated as the conference’s scholar-athlete of the year after also earning the accolade last season. Rodesch was a first-team CSC Academic All-American and a three-time ITA Singles All-American. He was ranked as high as No. 2 and finished the year ranked No. 7 in the ITA Singles rankings, posting a 16-2 record in dual matches during the regular season and was named the 2024 ITA Atlantic Region Senior of the Year. The three-time All-ACC First Team honoree finished his career with a 94-27 record in singles and a 59-26 mark in doubles, helping to lead the Cavaliers to two NCAA titles, three ACC Championships and a perfect 48-0 record in regular-season ACC matches over the last four years.

This is the ninth time a Cavalier has been named the ACC Scholar-Athlete of the Year for men’s tennis. Rodesch joins Dominic Inglot (2008-09), Mitchell Frank (2014), Thai-Son Kwiatkowski (2016-17) and Carl Söderlund (2019, 2021) on the recipient list.

The ACC Scholar-Athlete of the Year award was established in September 2007 to be awarded annually to the top junior or senior student-athlete in their respective sports.

Academic requirements for selection to the All-ACC Academic Team are a 3.0 grade point average for the previous semester and a 3.0 cumulative average during one’s academic career. In addition, student-athletes must compete in at least 50 percent of their team’s contests.

The ACC Honor Roll will be released in July, which recognizes all conference student-athletes with a grade point average of 3.0 for the current academic year.
