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.
