Hobart College juniors Michael Fields and Luke DeLuccia were recently recognized as 2013 Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) Scholar-Athletes. It's the second year in a row Fields and DeLuccia have earned the award.
To receive individual honors, a student-athlete must be a varsity letter winner and have a grade point average of 3.5 for the past academic year. Both Fields and DeLuccia earned spots on the 2013 Liberty League All-Academic Team in the spring.
Fields led the Statesmen with a team-high 11 singles victories, including a 5-1 mark at the No. 5 spot. He also posted a 12-11 overall doubles record, including six wins at No.1.
DeLuccia played at Nos. 4-6 singles last season, earning two wins. He also played at Nos. 2 and 3 doubles, tallying seven victories at the No. 3 spot.
The Statesmen finished the 2012-13 season with a 5-15 overall record. Hobart will open 2013-14 at the Flower City Invitational Sept. 7-8 in Rochester, N.Y.
