ANNVILLE, Pa. - Hood College senior Alex Sexton was named to the Academic All-Middle Atlantic Conference team in men's tennis for his performance in the classroom and on the tennis court.

It marks the second straight season that Sexton earned a spot on the Academic All-MAC squad. 

A psychology major, Sexton was voted All-MAC Commonwealth First Team earlier this spring. The Blazers' number one singles player for the last three seasons, he won a pair of conference matches this season, defeating players from Albright and Lycoming. In doubles action, he won four times, including a pair of conference victories against Lebanon Valley and Lycoming. 

The Academic All-MAC teams recognize the top student-athletes both in the classroom and on the field during the 2018 spring semester. The MAC sports information directors nominate and vote on the Academic All-MAC teams, giving 50 percent weight to both academic success and athletic success.
