Romeoville, Ill. - Lewis University men's tennis player Uno Lapimaa (Tallinn, Estonia/Audentese) has been selected to the 2012 Capital One Academic All-District ® 4 Men's At-Large First Team, selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).
The Academic All-District ® honorees advance to the Capital One Academic All-America® Team ballot, where first, second and third-team All-America honorees will be selected later this month. Lapimaa, a sport management major, owns a cumulative grade-point-average of 3.31.
In his final season in a Flyer uniform, Lapimaa compiled a singles record of 36-6 and a combined doubles mark of 32-7 as he helped Lewis to a berth in the NCAA Midwest Regional Tournament. For his efforts, Lapimaa was the only unanimous selection to the All-GLVC Team and was named the ITA Midwest Region 'Senior Player of the Year'.
"I am so proud of Uno," Lewis head men's tennis coach Brett Bridel said. "He truly exemplifies what it means to be a student-athlete. To be able to perform at such a high level in both the classroom and the tennis court is truly remarkable."
