MURFREESBORO - Middle Tennessee men's tennis junior Ettore Zito completed the 2014 season ranked 95th in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) rankings released earlier this week.
Zito recorded a 13-6 overall record and won 10 of his singles matches as the Blue Raiders No. 1 player. The junior from Sicily knocked off four nationally-ranked foes in 2014 to eventually enter the ITA rankings.
"This caps off a phenomenal year for Ettore and sets up the stage for a huge senior year," said head coach Jimmy Borendame. "I am looking forward to having his leadership on court in the upcoming season."
In the school's first year in Conference USA, Zito garnered first team All-Conference honors. In 2013, he earned second team All-Sun Belt accolades.
