W. Tennis: Hule Earns All-American Honors

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (seminoles.com) – Petra Hule, who has already been announced as the ITA Southeast Regional Senior of the Year, has been named an All-American for the 2022 season by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association.  Hule completed her senior campaign as the No. 3 seed in the NCAA Singles Tournament and ranked No. 7 in the final ITA ranking of the year. 

The honor of earning the All-American title from the ITA is bestowed on student-athletes that earn a top 16 seed in the NCAA singles championship, advance to the round of 16 at the NCAA Championship, or finish in the top 20 of the final ITA singles rankings. 

Hule is just the third two-time All-American (and first since 1996) in Florida State history.  She has now earned All-American honors in doubles (in 2020) and in singles (in 2022).  Hule joins Audra Brannon (1993, doubles; 1994 singles) and Lori Sowell (1995 and 1996 singles) as the only players in Seminole history to earn All-America honors multiple times during their careers. 

Hule led the Seminoles to the NCAA Championship for the fourth time in her five-year career in 2022.  Florida State reached the Round of 32 with a victory over FIU in the first round of the NCAA Championships.  Hule helped the Seminoles to two Elite 8 appearances (2019 and 2022) during her career.

“I’m truly honored to have two All-American titles next to my name as my time at FSI closes out,” said Hule.  “I’m lucky to share one of those with Vic (Allen).”

W. Tennis: Hule Earns All-American Honors

Hule finished her senior season with a 28-8 record – a slate that includes a 22-2 record during the spring season.  Her 22 wins playing on court one during the spring set the school record for a Seminole in the No. 1 position, while her 28 wins for the year are tied for the ninth highest single-year total in school history.  Hule’s 22 wins as a senior bring her career total to 96 career singles victories – the seventh-highest total in school history. 

Hule is the second winningest player in school history with 202 combined victories – 106 in doubles and 96 in singles.  Her 106 doubles wins are tied for the most in school history.  Her 202 combined wins makes her one of only two people in school history (Andrew Garcia, 206 wins, 2017-21) to have earned 200 or more victories as a Seminole. 

“The much deserved recognitions for Petra keep coming,” said Head Coach Jen Hyde.  “Becoming the first two-time All-America honoree since 1996 is very telling of the career she has had at Florida State. She has earned All-America honors in both doubles and singles in her career at FSU, only the 2nd player in program history to do so. Besides winning an individual National Championship, earning All-America honors falls second on the list of the highest level of accolade a college tennis player can achieve, and Petra has done just that, again. She has proven herself to be among the best of the best in college tennis. I’m incredibly proud of Pep and everything she has accomplished.”
