ATHENS, Ga. — University of Georgia men’s tennis graduate Tristan McCormick was named to the 2022 Southeastern Conference Community Service Team, the league announced on Thursday, April 14.
In just one season donning the red and black, McCormick has become a vocal leader for the Bulldogs on and off the court. He has played an important role in the Georgia Tennis ‘Serving for a Cause’ initiative that has raised support for the Boys and Girls Club of Athens.
This year, both the men’s and women’s tennis teams at Georgia announced a student-athlete-led project that asked for support from fans to raise funds to help send local children at the Boys and Girls Club of Athens to summer camp. This allows for parents to send their children to summer camp while the school-year Boys and Girls Club program is not in session. McCormick, the Berwyn, Pennsylvania native, was the men’s tennis program leader and representative for the “Serving for a Cause” initiative.
Prior to attending Georgia, McCormick was with the Notre Dame men’s tennis program for four seasons, where he was also a prominent figure in the philanthropic community. He was the team’s lead for an initiative called “Fighting Irish, Fight for Life.” McCormick and the Notre Dame team signed a pediatric cancer patient to the men’s tennis program to be an honorary player. He and his teammates made regular visits to the hospital, had their honorary member attend matches and much more.
McCormick and the Georgia Bulldogs will be back in action at home on Friday, April 15 to face the Auburn Tigers at 5 p.m. ET. On Sunday, April 16 McCormick and fellow graduate Hamish Stewart will be honored during Senior Day when Georgia takes on the Alabama Crimson Tide at 1 p.m. ET.
