Albany, NY—The Empire 8 announced the 2019 men's tennis awards this week and Sage's rookie Ryan Burke (Greenville, NY/Greenville) was named to the Empire 8 Men's Tennis Sportsmanship Team.
One member of each team was named that institution's representative on the 2019 Men's Tennis Sportsman of the Year Team. The Empire 8 Conference emphasizes that "Competing with Honor and Integrity" is an essential component of a student-athlete's experience in conjunction with an institution's educational mission. These honorees have distinguished themselves and consistently exhibit the critical traits as outstanding sportsmen.
A newcomer to the program this season, Burke played at No. 5 and No. 6 singles this spring and also saw time at third doubles for the Gators.
