ATHENS, Ga. --- Georgia men’s tennis players Wil Spencer and KU Singh have added to the Bulldogs’ rich history of All-America honors with their performances during the 2012 season, the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) announced Thursday.
Spencer and Singh are each 2012 All-Americans in singles, as Georgia has now totaled 86 All-America honors by 44 different players dating back to 1971. In the Manuel Diaz era, 30 players have earned 60 All-America awards.
Spencer, a senior from Ponce de Leon, Fla., earned his second consecutive All-America honor both by entering the NCAA singles tournament as a top-16 seed as well as by reaching the round of 16 in the event.
