WILLIAMSBURG, VA (UNCW) -– Talented junior Rafael Aita became the first UNCW netter to earn CAA Player-of-the-Year honors as a large group of Seahawk tennis standouts made a big haul on the eve of the 2013 Colonial Athletic Association Tennis Championships.

The teams competing in the event at the W&M’s Millie West Tennis Facility convened Thursday night to recognize the season’s best players.

Coach Mait DuBois and the red-hot men’s team are the No. 1 seed and will face the winner of the Drexel-Delaware match in the semifinals on Saturday at 2 p.m. Coach Evan Clark and the No. 2-seeded women’s team take on No. 7 Hofstra Friday at 9 a.m.

Aita, ranked 64th this week by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association, secured First-Team honors for the second straight year, headlining four Seahawks on the six-member club. The native of Lima, Peru, posted a 14-5 record in singles, playing 18 of the matches at the top of the lineup.

The crafty Aita was joined on the First-Team by senior Kosta Blank, senior Chris Cooprider and sophomore Sam Williams. Sophomore Kaue Pereira collected Second-Team honors and sophomore Zach Hublitz earned Third-Team laurels.

Cooprider, from Denver, Colo., has won 17 of 20 matches this season, including eight in a row. Blank is tied for first all-time in doubles victories and ranks fourth overall with 54 singles victories. He has clinched three of the last five matches.

In doubles, the Seahawks featured two pairings on the First-Team. Blank and Cooprider, ranked 28th nationally, and Aita and Williams, ranked 54th, were both recognized by the CAA’s coaches.

The doubles tandem of Pereira and freshman Santtu Leskinen also made Second-Team All-CAA.

DuBois, in his sixth season with the program, garnered CAA Coach-of-the-Year accolades for the second time. He also was honored in 2009.

On the women’s side, junior Angie Sekely earned First-Team All-CAA honors in singles after playing the No. 1 position all season for the Seahawks. Junior Kelly Cameron, senior Christina Riley and sophomore Alyssa Ritchie each landed Second-Team honors in singles.

CHAPEL HILL (NCHSAA) -— As part of the celebration of the centennial of the North Carolina High School Athletic Association, the NCHSAA has released the first list of its “100 To Remember” series.

The list of “100 To Remember: Administrators” highlights one hundred of the top administrators in NCHSAA history, going back to the founding of the organization in 1913. A special committee, including school administrators and coaches from across the state as well as sports media, put together the list in a series of meetings.

Many people made nominations for the lists on the NCHSAA web site. Association records and archives were also consulted, as well as members of the committee offering names for discussion. Administrators included athletic directors, principals, superintendents or others involved with the administration of athletics at a local or statewide level.

“Coming up with a list of ‘100 To Remember’ was a tremendous challenge,” said Davis Whitfield, commissioner of the NCHSAA. “So many individuals have participated, coached or been involved with the rich history and tradition of the first 100 years of the NCHSAA. This group of distinguished individuals not only served their schools, school systems and communities in an exceptional fashion, but our Association as well.”

During the 2013 year in which the 100th anniversary is celebrated by the NCHSAA, other “100 To Remember” lists will be released, including coaches, female athletes and male athletes. The development of the lists and the discussions certainly fit in with the slogan for the centennial: “Honoring the Past, Embracing the Present and Shaping the Future.”
All of the 100th anniversary lists will be posted in the NCHSAA website under the special 100th portal.
