April 28, 2000



TALLAHASSEE, FL. — The Florida State men’s tennis team learned
hours before their match against FAMU on Friday that two teammates had been
awarded all-conference honors. Senior Mike Ingham and sophomore Xavier
Luscan were selected to the All-ACC team which is voted on by the nine head
coaches in the league.

Ingham and Luscan are the first Seminoles since 1996 to be named
All-ACC. Ingham is ranked 97th in the nation by the ITA and has won 10 of
19 matches at the No. 2 singles position this season for the ‘Noles.
Ingham went 3-1 against fellow All-ACC members this dual match season.

Luscan, who is currently ranked No. 50 in the country by the ITA,
went 15-8 at No. 1 singles this spring including wins over the 10th, the
18th and the 44th-ranked players in the nation. Luscan transferred to
Florida State after playing a year at UCLA.

Luscan and Ingham have led the Seminoles to a 13-10 record and a
national ranking of No. 54. The Seminoles finished in fifth place in the
ACC in 2000 and will host Florida A&M in their final regular season match
this evening, April 28th, before hearing from the NCAA if they have been
selected into the tournament. The field of 64 will be announced on May
4th.
