Richard Brej was one of four named to the SEC First-Year Academic Honor Roll.

Four members of the University of Florida men’s tennis team were recognized for their success in the classroom during the 2013-14 school year when they were named to the Southeastern Conference First-Year Academic Honor Roll as announced by the SEC on Friday.

Richard Brej, Maxx Lipman, Elliott Orkin and Joshua Wardell earned SEC First-Year Academic honors for maintaining a personal grade point average of 3.00 for either the preceding academic year or having a cumulative GPA of 3.00 or above at the nominating institution as well as being on scholarship, a letterwinner, having completed 24 semester hours of non-remedial credit at the nominating institution, and having been a member of the varsity team for the sport’s entire NCAA Championship segment.

Combined with the three upperclassmen – Michael Alford, Florent Diep and Spencer Newman – who made the SEC Academic Honor Roll, the UF men’s tennis team had seven players recognized for their academic achievements during the last school year. Florida has 55 First-Year Academic Honor Roll selections across all sports in addition to 184 non-first-year selections for a total of 243 student-athletes on the SEC Academic Honor Rolls in 2013-14. 

This year’s honors mark the first SEC First-Year Academic Honor Roll members earned under head coach Bryan Shelton who will begin his third year as head coach at UF this season. Florida tops the league in men’s tennis with four First-Year Academic honorees in their respective sport.
