TEMPE, Ariz. – The Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) announced its NCAA Division II All-America singles and doubles teams Thursday, with Georgia College Men's Tennis bringing in honors. Robin Möller (Hamburg, Germany) was named to the singles squad, and joined Matt Rogel (Sautron, France) as a doubles All-America as well.

Möller finished No. 17 in the nation in singles, going 15-2 this season, including victories over four nationally-ranked players. He started the season on an impressive 10-0 run, including victories over the No. 12, No. 21 and No. 30 players in the nation. He and Rogel teamed for a 16-3 record, taking the No. 3 slot in the country. The duo pulled off four nationally-ranked wins, including an upset of No. 1 Zach Whaanga and Alvaro Regalado of Columbus State University.

Möller brings in the 14th All-America trophy in singles for GC Men's Tennis, the most recent being Pedro Ecenarro in 2018. The duo of Möller and Rogel is the fourth All-America honor for the program in doubles, including the most recent honorees of Christian Graff and Yannick Hass in 2016.

Möller also completes the rare feat of appearing on both the singles and doubles list in the same season, joining the elite group of Hass in 2016, and Erick Siqueira and Justin Pickham in 2009.

Bobcat Men's Tennis finished 11-8 in 2019, Möller taking first team All-PBC honors in singles and joining Rogel for first team doubles as well. The Bobcats beat three nationally-ranked teams this season, including then-No. 8 Valdosta State University.
