MONTGOMERY, Ala. – The 2011-12 Spring Hill College men's tennis team brought back three individual postseason awards from the Southern States Athletic Conference (SSAC) Championships as chosen by the head coaches of the nine member institutions on Friday.
Junior Jake Lyons (far left) of Jacksonville, Ala., was named to the 2012 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.
Two Badgers also qualified for the 2012 SSAC All Academic team. Lyons, a Pre-Health major, was joined on the list of the conference's top classroom performers by teammate and Applied Mathematics major sophomore Jacob Neu (near left) of Lafayette, La.
