ATHENS, Ga. — Alex Phillips, a junior on the Georgia men’s tennis team, has been named to the 2019 Southeastern Conference Men’s Tennis Community Service squad.
The Peachtree City, Georgia native made the SEC Academic Honor roll in 2017 and 2018 and has maintained a 3.48 GPA in Management Information Systems. Phillips is the team’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee representative and helps with several community service initiatives while keeping a busy schedule both on the court and in the classroom.
“Alex is an outstanding teammate and a pleasure to coach,” head coach Manuel Diaz said. “With our year-long schedule, it is very tough to balance tennis, academics and community service. Alex has done a tremendous job and we are very proud of the way he represents our program.”
Phillips has six singles win this year, with most of those coming this past fall. He also boasted a 10-2 mark in doubles and teamed with Sam Dromsky to win the Southern Intercollegiate Division II doubles crown during the autumn campaign.
Most recently, Phillips defeated Kennesaw State’s Jose Galvez to earn his second-straight singles win of the year.
