Release: 06/05/2014

SKILLMAN, N.J. - The 2014 Intercollegiate Tennis Association All-America Teams were officially named Thursday with Tar Heel freshman Brayden Schnur being named to the first-team All-America squad on the men's side.

The talented Pickering, Ontario native is the first Tar Heel freshman to make the All-America Team since Daryl Wyatt in 1993 and the first UNC player of any class to make the squad since Jose Hernandez in 2011.

Schnur enrolled at Carolina in January in time to lead the Tar Heels to a record-setting dual match that led UNC to a 27-6 mark, a spot in the ACC Tournament finals (first since 2007) and a berth in NCAA quarterfinals (first since 1992).

Schnurs final singles record was 19-5, including a tremendous 13-4 mark versus nationally-ranked foes.  He finished 21-5 overall in doubles.

Schnur was named ACC Freshman Player of the Year, ITA regional and national Rookie Player of the Year, first-team All-ACC and an NCAA singles and doubles invitee.

He qualified for the All-America Team by being one of the Top 16 seeds in NCAA tournament in singles and finishing in Top 20 of final ITA singles rankings.
