WACO, TX — Baylor men’s tennis freshman Adrian Boitan was named the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) Texas Regional Rookie of the Year, announced by the organization Saturday morning.

Boitan is the eighth player in program history to earn the honor and first Bear since Julian Lenz in 2013.

The Constanta, Romania native compiled a 16-4 singles and 6-3 doubles record during his first season in Waco, posting an unblemished 7-0 singles mark against ranked opponents.

Boitan went 3-2 in Big 12 play and 2-0 in tournament action to earn Big 12 Championship Most Outstanding Player, Big 12 Freshman of the Year, Big 12 Individual Singles Champion and All-Big 12 Singles Second Team accolades last month.

The ITA national award winners will be announced on May 19.
