Positively Promoting the Student Athlete Since 1992

BRUNSWICK, Ga.—Southeastern University junior Felipe Barbosa hauled in three awards at The Sun Conference Tournament Banquet.
Not only was he named Second Team All-Sun Conference, but he was also honored as a member of the Academic All-Conference Team, and was the Co-Champion of Character Award recipient.
Barbosa posted a 10-9 record and was 3-4 in conference play, playing No. 1 singles for all but two matches and has teamed with Thomas Ortega to post a 15-4 record in doubles. That tandem has won nine of its last 10, and went 6-1 in conference play.
The Vila Velha, Brazil native qualified for academic all-conference by posting a GPA of 3.5 or higher, achieving sophomore status, and having at least two semesters complete at his institution.
Barbosa was also named a co-recipient of the Champion of Character Award, having served as a captain for the Fire the last two seasons, has championed environmental causes, and has helped create a Brazilian Student Association at Southeastern and has helped create one at USF as well.
The Fire will take on Coastal Georgia Thursday in The Sun Conference semifinals.
