Cid named Southeast POTY


TEMPE, Ariz. — Senior Roberto Cid earned yet another postseason honor as he was named as the Southeast Region Player of the Year for the 2016 season, the Intercollegiate Tennis Association announced Monday.

The Dominican Republican native led the team with an impressive 22-2 record, all at the premier spot. Before climbing all the way to a No. 2 ranking this season, Cid took down the No. 1, 2 and 3 players in the nation, including topping the No. 2 and No. 1 player twice. Cid is the highest ranked player to ever compete for USF and the only All-American in either men’s or women’s tennis program.

Last week, Cid was named the American Athletic Conference Player of the Year for the third straight year and earned all-conference honors in singles play. The senior now has three conference honors and two regional honors to his name as he was the 2015 Southeast Regional Player to Watch. The ITA national award winners will be announced on Tuesday, May 24.

The USF men’s tennis team enjoyed quite the success in 2016. The team reached a program-high ranking of 13 and won their third consecutive conference championship.

The team will head to Gainesville, Fla. for the NCAA First and Second Rounds, Saturday, May 14 and Sunday, May 15. USF will face off against St. John’s at 9 a.m. on May 14, in the first round of the tournament. Should they win, the Bulls will face the winner of the Florida/North Florida match on Sunday, May 15.
