Attila Toth of Queens Named ITA All-American for Second Straight Year

Skillman, N.J. - The Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) recently announced its 2011-12 NCAA Division II men's tennis All-America selections, and Queens (N.Y.) College senior Attila Toth (Budapest, Hungary) was tabbed on the list for the second-consecutive campaign. He is the first two-time ITA All-America selection in school history.

The honor wraps up an illustrious two-year career for Toth, who transferred to head coach Craig Schwartz's program after spending his first two years at Nevada-Las Vegas. He was named the Queens College Male Most Valuable Player at the school's year-end awards banquet, and is a two-time East Coast Conference Player of the Year. Not only did Toth receive the 2010-11 ITA East Region Player to Watch distinction, he also received the association's Senior Player of the Year praise this season.

Toth wrapped up the 23th-ranked Knights' stay in the NCAA Division II Round of 16 with records of 16-6 (.727) in singles play at the No. 1 flight, and a 27-8 mark (.771) in top-flight doubles action. He finished off his season with a No. 18 national ranking in singles play, and a No. 15 mark in doubles (along with junior Nikolaj Wulff) action. The duo advanced to the USTA/ITA Small College Championships in the fall portion of the stanza, after taking home the USTA/ITA East Region crown.

In his two-year career in a Knights uniform, Toth, a 2010-11 All-America selection by the ITA, went 37-8 (.822) in singles play, and 47-12 (.797) in doubles action.
