MELBOURNE – Juniors Jose de Sario and Fabian Lundberg were named to the All-Sunshine State Conference Singles second-team as announced today by the league office, while Brian Slivonik joined with de Sario to earn All-SSC Doubles second-team honors.
A native of Dorlamar, Venezuela, de Sario posted a 15-6 overall record this season, mainly at #2 singles where he is 13-4. In three matches at #1 singles, he was 1-2 while posting a 1-0 record at #4 singles. He won six matches in a row from March 7-17 and three of his wins this year came versus regionally-ranked opponents.
Hailing from Akersberga, Sweden, Lundberg was 13-8 this year, all as the Moccasins' #1 singles player. He won six matches in a row from March 7-17 and, like de Sario, recorded three of his wins in 2016 against regionally-ranked opponents.
