Reiff, Ramadier, Flodberg on All-Big Sky Men’s Tennis Team

BIG SKY RELEASE

OGDEN, Utah – Sophomore Andrew Reiff earned his second All-Big Sky first team selection, leading three Lumberjacks honored on the 2010 Men's Big Sky All-Conference Tennis team. Freshman Hugo Ramadier was named to the second team while junior David Flodberg was honorable mention for the second-consecutive season. The three selections for the Lumberjacks were the most for the program since 2007.

Reiff led the Lumberjacks from the No. 1 singles position to a second-place Big Sky finish and the program's first trip to the Big Sky championship match since 2001. The Phoenix native went 10-8 overall during the regular season and 5-2 in the Big Sky, including an early-season win against No. 75 UNLV. He also teamed with sophomore Robin Pezzutto to go 14-6 in doubles with a 6-1 conference doubles mark. He becomes the first two-time first-team selection for NAU since Thibault Schram in 2004 and 2005.

In his first season at NAU, Ramadier posted a 13-8 overall record and went 5-3 in the Big Sky at No. 1, 2, 3 and 4 singles. The native of France started the season 9-1 en route to his first-career all-conference honor. Playing at No. 4 and 5, Flodberg was one of only two Big Sky players to go undefeated in conference play, posting an 8-0 conference mark to go with a 14-6 overall record. The junior from Gothenburg, Sweeden won five straight matches to end the regular season and picked up a key win against Weber State in the Big Sky Championship semifinals.

Pezzutto (13-7 overall, 7-1 BSC at No. 3 and 4) and freshman Kevin Taylor (14-7 overall, 7-1 BSC at No. 5 and 6) were among several worthy candidates left off the stacked All-Big Sky team. The Lumberjacks finished the season at 13-9, posting their most wins in a season since 2000 and recording their first winning overall record since 2002. All-three honorees, as well as the other three starters in 2010, are expected to return next season.
