UNC's Jamie Loeb named ITA National POY

Posted June 18

North Carolina freshman Jamie Loeb is ranked No. 1 in the NCAA and she's already a National Champion at Carolina winning the indoor title last fall.

— University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill freshman tennis player Jamie Loeb has been named the 2014 ITA National College Player of the Year, the ITA announced on Wednesday.

Loeb wrapped up an impressive season with a 53-4 singles record, including a 19-1 mark in the fall. Her 53 wins are the most in program history for the UNC women's tennis program. The Ossining, N.Y., native won singles titles at the 2013 USTA/ITA National Indoor Intercollegiate Championships and Riviera/ITA Women's All-American Championships.

She has been ranked in the No. 1 spot in the ITA Division I National Singles Rankings since Feb. 11 and is the first female from UNC to be the top-ranked singles player. Loeb was named an ITA All-America in both singles and doubles and is the 2014 ITA National Rookie of the Year.

Loeb led her team to a runner-up finish at the 2014 NCAA Team Championships, the first national championship match in program history.

UCLA’s Marcos Giron was named the men’s National Player of the Year, while Alabama's Erin Routliffe and Maya Jansen were named the ITA National Women's Doubles Team of the Year, and Mikelis Libietis and Hunter Reese of Tennessee were honored on the men's side.

The ITA College Player of the Year Awards are given to the male and female singles players who have had the most outstanding year in Division I college tennis. The collegiate players will be honored on Saturday, July 12 in Newport, R.I., at a special Awards Luncheon during the Rolex Hall of Fame Enshrinement Weekend, and immediately prior to the 2014 International Tennis Hall of Fame Enshrinement Ceremony.
