Chadwick's Top Moments: No. 3

bramtrophy.jpgAs we dwindle down our list of top moments from the Coach Chadwick era, which will officially come to a close at the end of the NCAA Individual Championships next weekend, today's moment No. 3 represents the true epitome of a student-athlete.  

In 2009, two-time All-American Bram ten Berge was recognized by the Southeastern Conference for his excellence in the classroom.  Ten Berge was honored by being named the 2009 Boyd McWhorter Southeastern Conference Scholar-Athlete of the Year.  He was voted by all the Faculty Athletics Representatives from the SEC.  As part of the award, ten Berge received a $15,000 postgraduate scholarship.  He graduated with a 3.97 GPA, made the Chancellor's Honor Roll every semester, and was a four-time ITA Scholar-Athlete recipient.

Ten Berge not only took care of his business in the classroom, he took care of business on the court.  He ended the 2009 season ranked No. 3 in the nation in doubles while spending 14 weeks ranked No. 1.  As a team captain, ten Berge was an All-SEC first team selection and led the Rebels to the NCAA Elite Eight and a final ranking of No. 4.

We will conclude our top moments next week.  However, we will have a couple of bonus moments that have recently come to light.  Stay tuned next week to catch the remaining moments from the era of Coach Chadwick, as well as some exciting and noteworthy bonus moments.

Chadwick's Top Moments: No. 6

2008secchamps.jpgWe begin this week jumping a couple years into 2008 for moment No. 6.  The Rebels enjoyed a multitude of team and individual accomplishments during the 2008 season.  The Rebels began their postseason success by winning the program's second Southeastern Conference Tournament Championship.  The Rebels defeated No. 12 Florida 4-1 to take home the nation's toughest conference title.  The win was highlighted by senior Erling Tveit's performance in which he took down the nation's No. 2 ranked player in straight sets to clinch it for the Rebs.  Jonas Berg was named tournament MVP after going 4-0 in singles and doubles.  

The Rebels continued their hot play, advancing to the Elite Eight for the eighth time in program history.  The Rebels took care of business in the ninth Oxford Regional, taking down Marist 4-0 and Vanderbilt 4-1 to advance to the Sweet Sixteen in Tulsa, Oklahoma.  There, the Rebels beat North Carolina 4-2 before falling to Georgia in the NCAA Quarterfinals.  The Rebels finished the season ranked No. 6 in the country.  This marked the 13th time in the past 15 years under head coach Billy Chadwick that the Rebel netters ended a season ranked in the top 10 nationally.

In addition to an outstanding team season overall, the Rebels would also have several individuals who saw great personal success.  The Rebels made up half of the semifinal field of the NCAA Doubles Championship.  Erling Tveit and Jonas Berg teamed together while Bram ten Berge and Matthias Wellermann formed another tandem.  Tveit and Berg finished as the runner-up while ten Berge and Wellermann fell in the semifinals.  All four players earned All-America honors which tied for most in the country by a single team.

On Wednesday, we will begin our top five with a bang.  Stay tuned and check out which Rebel achieved the greatest individual milestone one can reach in all of college tennis.
