Three Trojans Pick Up Pac-12 All-Academic Honorable Mention|
June 7, 2017
A trio of USC men’s tennis players have wrapped up their 2017 campaign with academic accolades, with Pac-12 All-Academic Honorable Mention going to Nick Crystal, Jake DeVine and Thibault Forget. It’s the first academic award for all three Trojans, who all boast cumulative GPAs of 3.0 or higher while having helped lead the USC men along to a 27-6 overall record and yet another trip to the NCAA Round of 16 in the 2016-17 season.
Senior Nick Crystal closes out his USC career with his first Pac-12 All-Academic honors as he finishes his degree in political science while boasting a 3.0 GPA. In his four years on-court for the Trojans, he posted a 79-37 career record in singles and a 79-32 mark in doubles. Ranked No. 107 in the nation in singles and No. 73 in the land in doubles to wrap 2017, Crystal was a team captain for the Trojans as a senior. He also clinched four matches in his senior season.
Junior Thibault Forget carries a 3.17 GPA as an economics major to land his first Pac-12 All-Academic award. The native of France was second on the team in singles victories this season with a 29-14 mark, while notching four match-clinching victories during dual-match play. Sophomore Jake DeVine got a good start to the season before being sidelined by injury, though he remained a fixture alongside his Trojan teammates throughout the season. A philosophy, politics and law major, DeVine holds a 3.13 GPA.
