CENTER VALLEY, Pa. -- Three members of the Patriot League-champion Navy men's tennis team recently garnered academic accolades from the league. Recent graduate Marcus Rebersak (Pittsburgh, Pa.), rising junior Chris Kenney (Westlake Village, Calif.) and rising sophomore Alex Sisk (Clarksville, Ind.) were each named to the Patriot League Academic Honor Roll.
A grade-point average of at least 3.20 during the 2012 spring semester was required to earn placement onto the honor roll. A total of 44 men's tennis players from the league's seven programs garnered the laurel.
Rebersak played No. 1 singles for the Mids this season and won four of his five completed matches against league foes this spring to help the Mids win the program's fifth league tournament crown in the last six seasons. He would earn First-Team All-Patriot League honors this season after having previously earned second-team accolades as a sophomore. A mainstay in the Navy lineup throughout his career, Rebersak played 86 of his 90 career singles matches at either No. 1 or No. 2 singles. In the classroom, the physics major posted a GPA of 3.65 during his final term on The Yard.
Kenney compiled an overall record of 21-13 during the 2011-12 season to raise his career record to 32-19. The economics major was one of six men's tennis players in the league to post a 4.00 GPA this spring. Kenney has been named to both the Superintendent's and Commandant's Lists in three of his four semesters at Navy.
Navy was the lone program in the league to have multiple players attain a 4.00 GPA as Sisk also recorded that mark. The English major appeared on the Commandant's List in both semesters of his recently completed freshman year, while being named to the Dean's List in the fall term and to the Superintendent's List for the spring semester. Sisk only appeared in three singles matches this season, but picked up wins in two of those contests.
