CHARLOTTESVILLE - Virginia junior men's tennis player Mitchell Frank (Annandale, Va.) has been named to the Capital One Academic All-District 3 at-large first team, the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) announced Thursday. With the selection, Frank is now eligible for Academic All-America consideration.
Frank is currently ranked No. 4 nationally in singles and has led the Cavaliers to a 25-2 record. The All-ACC and All-American honoree has posted a 19-3 singles record this season. In October, he won the ITA All-American Championships singles title, the marquee event of the fall season. Later this month he will be the No. 4 seed for the NCAA Singles Championship.
Academically, Frank boasts a 3.51 grade point average as a Foreign Affairs major. To be eligible for consideration, an athlete must have a minimum 3.30 GPA and compete in half of their team's contests that season. The men's at-large team includes athletes from fencing, golf, gymnastics, ice hockey, lacrosse, rifle, skiing, swimming, tennis, volleyball, water polo and wrestling.
