IRVING, Texas – Old Dominion University’s Carlos Lopez Villa has been named as one of just six student-athletes to the 2014 All-Conference USA Singles First Team, as announced by conference officials today.

Old Dominion’s No. 65 Carlos Lopez Villa, who is 20-1 on the season and has won nine matches in a row has been a solid rock at the No. 1 slot all year for Aljosa Piric’s Monarchs. On March 29th, Lopez Villa snapped UNCW’s No. 69 Rafael Atia three-match winning streak in dominating two-set fashion 6-1, 6-0.

Unbelievably, the 6’4 right handed junior from Madrid, Spain has now compiled an incredible 38-2 over the past two seasons in an Old Dominion University uniform.

In November, Carlos became just the second male in school history to capture the Regional Single’s crown after defeating VCU’s Alexis Huegas in the finals, earning himself a spot in the National Indoor Tournament in Flushing, N.Y. at the Billie Jean King Tennis Center.

Perhaps even more impressively, Lopez Villa is shining in the classroom and representing not only his school but Conference USA too, as he was named to his second consecutive Conference USA All-Academic Team. Carlos is the definition of a student-athlete, as he is a double major of Economics and Finance and possesses a cumulative GPA of 3.83. Lopez Villa has been named to the Dean’s List on three different occasions. The Madrid, Spain-native has garnered two C-USA Academic Medals, is a two-time C-USA Honor Roll student-athlete, as well as received the CAA Commissioner’s Academic Award.
