July 7, 2010

Greensboro, N.C. – Guillermo Gomez, Kevin King and Ryan Smith were each named to the Atlantic Coast Conference’s 2010 All-ACC Academic Team, announced Wednesday by Commissioner John D. Swofford.

Gomez, a junior Industrial Engineering major, and Smith, a junior Biochemistry major, each made the team for the third time. King, a sophomore Mechanical Engineering major, was named for the second time.

Gomez, ranked No. 5 in the final Intercollegiate Tennis Association singles rankings and an All-American for the second time, and King, ranked 97th, also made the All-ACC team this spring.

Gomez, from Alicante, Spain, compiled a 29-8 singles record and reached the round of 16 at the NCAA Singles Championship. King, from Peachtree City, Ga., had a singles record of 12-6 playing No. 2 in an injury-shortened spring and also went 10-6 in doubles, teaming with freshman Juan Spir as the nation’s 83rd-ranked doubles team.

Smith, from Marietta, Ga., was primarily a doubles player for the Yellow Jackets, teaming with Eliot Potvin to go 8-2 in the spring.

Florida State senior Jean-Yves Aubone has been named the ACC’s Men’s Tennis Scholar-Athlete of the Year. Other 2010 All-ACC players joining Aubone on this year’s All-ACC Academic Team are FSU teammate Vahid Mirzadeh, Boston College’s Akash Muppidi, Virginia’s Sanam Singh and Virginia Tech’s Luka Somen.

The 2010 Men’s Tennis All-ACC Academic team includes 13 student-athletes who have earned the honor on at least one previous occasion, including four-time honoree Dylan Arnould of Duke and three-time honorees Singh of Virginia, and Gomez and Ryan Smith of Georgia Tech.
