MONTGOMERY, Ala. - The 2010-11 Spring Hill College men's tennis team brought back six individual postseason awards from the Southern States Athletic Conference (SSAC) Championships as chosen by the head coaches of the nine teams on Friday.
Senior Chris Link of Louisville, Ky., was named to the 2011 Musco Lighting-SSAC Champions of Character Team from the Badger squad. This award recognizes an individual from each participating school who encompasses the five core character values of integrity, respect, responsibility, sportsmanship and servant leadership that stand at the heart of the NAIA Champions of Character program.
Five Badgers also qualified for the 2011 SSAC All Academic team. Link was joined by fellow senior Johnny Ngamvilay of St. Elmo, Ala., along with sophomores Wil Amanor of Murphy High School in Mobile, Jake Lyons of Jacksonville, Ala., and Colin Perry of Mobile's UMS-Wright Prep on the list of top classroom performers.
